Classics Minor

The minor in Classics is an interdisciplinary program that provides students with an understanding of the culture of ancient Greece and Rome. In conjunction with a major program in anthropology, art history, English, history, philosophy, or political science, the classics minor will prepare students for graduate study in the major field. Alternatively, the Classics program can serve as a means of enriching one’s experience and achieving a fuller understanding of contemporary Western culture.

The minor consists of 28 units, of which 4 are required in Classics and 24 are selected from the five areas listed below. Courses chosen must include at least one from each of three different areas. Prior approval must be obtained from the adviser for selected topics and directed study courses. No more than 8 units taken for credit in the student’s major program can be used to meet requirements for the minor. Each student’s program must be approved by the director and principal adviser of the Classics program.
