Classical Studies Major and Minor

Major: A breadth of knowledge in Classics is essential for any undergraduate education. The Classical Studies track is our most flexible. It requires only two quarters of intermediate-level ancient language, and thus allows fulfillment of remaining units with courses following the student's own interests. Because of the low unit requirement and customized coursework, this track is easy to pair with multiple majors and athletics. But because of its minimal requirements on core materials, it is unsuitable as a basis for graduate study.

Minor: Students are required to take a minimum of five courses in Classics (CLASSART, CLASSGEN, CLASSGRK, CLASSHIS, CLASSLAT) plus the majors seminar (CLASSGEN 176). May count up to 4 units of the following: IHUM 39A,B; IHUM 69A; or SLE.
