Primary Instructor:

GREEK 103 provides an intensive introduction to ancient Greek and is designed to prepare students to read prose and poetry by the end of the semester. No previous background in the language is expected. The course concentrates on fifth-century B.C. Attic Greek, the language of the ‘golden age’ of Athens. The Greek language of that time and place represents a cultural and linguistic central point from which students can pursue their own interests within a wide range of Greek literature, which extends from the Homeric epics to the Byzantine era and which includes the archaic, classical, and Hellenistic periods as well as the Koinê Greek of the New Testament. The purpose of the course is to develop the fundamentals of the language so that these fundamentals can then be applied to whatever area of ancient Greek students wish to pursue.

Course Requirements:

Regular attendance, twice-weekly quizzes (vocabulary and grammar), three exams, and a final. Assignments are not graded but are reviewed in class.

Intended Audience:

No prior knowledge is required but students should be prepared for fast-paced learning. Graduate students should enroll in GREEK 504.

Class Format:

Presentation of new grammatical concepts, review of previously covered material, and lots of practice.
