Academics and Requirements


 

Classical Studies Advising

Students interested in the Department's majors in Greek, Latin, Classical Languages and Literatures, Classical Archaeology, Classical Civilization or Modern Greek major should check with the Department office for the name of the current advisor. Students interested in obtaining Teacher Certification in Latin should see Professor Deborah Ross.

Major advising for Modern Greek is provided by Professor Vassilios Lambropoulos and Artemis Leontis. Information about scheduling appointments is available from the department office.

The Department recommends that interested students see the department advisors as early as possible in order to plan their programs and avoid unnecessary scheduling conflicts.

Students wishing to pursue a minor in Classical Studies must develop a specific plan for its completion in consultation with the Department's designated advisor. Appointments may be scheduled at 2160 Angell Hall.

Special Departmental Policies

The department requires that a student earn a grade of at least C– in all language courses which are prerequisite for subsequent elections. A student should repeat any language course in which a D+ or lower grade is earned and which serves as a prerequisite to other courses which are to be elected. A grade of D+ signifies some achievement but denotes too weak a foundation for subsequent courses.

Classical Civilization

Effective Date: Fall 2012 

The Academic minor in  Classical Civilization is not open to students with a concentration in Classical Civilization or any other academic minor in the Department of Classical Studies.

This academic minor is designed to provide a grounding in ancient Greek and Roman civilization for those unable to elect Classical Civilization as a concentration. It requires students to learn about the history, literature, religion, philosophy, and material culture of ancient Greece and Rome, primarily through the close reading and analysis of original Greek and Latin texts in translation. Confrontation with how people lived and thought in ancient Greece and Rome allows students to gain an understanding of the relation between the ancient and modern world in all its complexity, and gives them valuable intellectual tools to deal with issues in many aspects of modern life. Courses in Classical Civilization also enhance students' ability to think critically and improve their competence in written and oral communication

Prerequisites to the Academic Minor: A minimum of two courses from the following choices, for a total of 8 credits. One course must emphasize Greek culture and the other course must emphasize Roman culture:

  • CLCIV 101 (The Ancient Greek World)
  • CLCIV 102  (The Ancient Roman World)
  • HISTORY 200 (Greece to 201 B.C.)
  • HISTORY 201 (Rome)
  • GTBOOKS 191 (Great Books)

Academic Minor Program: At least five upper-level courses (minimum 15 credits) in Classical Civilization at the 300 or 400 level, with at least one of these at the 400 level. These courses must include at least one course that satisfies the Upper-Level Writing Requirement or be one of the -Capstone Seminars," either CLCIV 480  or CLCIV 481.

One of the 300-level courses in Classical Civilization may be substituted for with any of the following

  1. One course (minimum 3 credits) in Classical Archaeology.
  2. One course (minimum 3 credits) in Ancient Greek or Roman history (other than one taken as a prerequisite to the academic minor).
  3. One course in ancient Greek or Latin at the third-semester level or above.
  4. MODGREEK 325, "Athens Present and Past"
