To complete the B.A. degree in classics, 21 hours beyond the intermediate level in Latin or Greek are required, to which 12 hours of a second language are added. This second language may be the other ancient language, or it may be a modern one. Upper division language instruction is normally taught seminar style and routinely requires a research and writing component. There is also a two-semester capstone thesis requirement in the senior year.
The block schedule incorporates the New Core Curriculum requirements and is just one example of how to structure courses for a classical humanities major. You should see your Classics advisor each semester to work out the schedule that best suits your needs and interests.View Full Curriculum
