The classics major leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree requires 36 hours of departmental offerings. In addition, each student completing the classics major will be strongly advised to choose a related minor selected in consultation with and approved by the departmental advisor. Courses from the Department of Classics (36 hours): Eight courses (24 hours) in either Greek or Latin or a combination of both, provided that at least three courses are included from the most advanced level in one of the languages. Four classics courses, of which at least two must be numbered above 300. Recommended additional courses outside the Department of Classics (12 to 18 hours): We strongly advocate the addition of four to six courses in a closely related field to be selected by the student in consultation with the departmental advisor. Examples of closely related fields are anthropology, art history, philosophy, comparative literature, history, theater, and English. A second major or a minor in one of these fields will normally satisfy this recommendation.
