Course Requirements:

Course participation; prospectus and bibliography (for thesis students); staged writing assignments; peer review; final project.

Intended Audience:

Students enrolled in Section 001 of CLCIV 480 and students writing an honors thesis in Classical Studies. Students enrolled in CLCIV 480.001 must enroll in CLCIV 480.002. Thesis students do not need to enroll in CLCIV 480.001.
