Academic Program

Greek, Latin, Ancient History, and Classical Studies may be a student's major or minor subject in either the Course or the Honors Program. Three of these tracks (Greek, Latin, and Ancient History) require advanced work in one of the original languages, while a major or minor in Classical Studies does not require but may include language study.

Acceptance into one of the majors is dependent on promising work in relevant courses (normally indicated by A's and B's).
