Fall Academic Term, 2003 (September 2 - December 19)



GREEK 101. Elementary Greek.

Elementary Courses

Section 001.

Instructor(s): Gina Marie Soter (soter@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: (4). (LR). May not be repeated for credit. Graduate students should elect GREEK 502.

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

In combination with GREEK 102, this is the first half of a year-long introduction to ancient Greek and is designed to prepare students for the reading of Greek texts. GREEK 101 concentrates on fifth-century B.C. Attic Greek which was 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 koine 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.
