Greek (Ancient) Language and Literature Minor

Effective Winter 2015

Exclusions:

The minor in Greek (Ancient) Language and Literature is not open to students with a major in Greek (Ancient) Language and Literature or Classical Languages or any other minor in the Department of Classical Studies.

Advising

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.

Grade 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.

Prerequisites

GREEK 301, or equivalent as determined by departmental placement examination.

Requirements

Minimum Credits: 16
  1. Greek Language and Literature courses: at least two upper-level courses, above GREEK 301.
  2. Greek Civilization courses: at least one broad introductory course (CLCIV 101, CLARCH 221, or HISTORY 200).
  3. Upper-Level courses: at least one upper-level (300- or 400-level) course in Greek civilization, archaeology, or history.

The Academic minor in  the Language, Literature, and Culture of Ancient Greece is not open to students with a major in Ancient Greek or Classical Languages or any other minor in the Department of Classical Studies.

More specifically, it requires students to study, at the intermediate and advanced level, Greek and authors writing poetry and/or prose, but at the same time it acquaints the student with the broader historical, social, and cultural content in which these authors lived and worked.

Academic Minor Program: At least 16 credits of courses, to be chosen from the following three categories as stated:

  1. Greek Language and Literature courses: at least two upper-level courses, above GREEK 301.
  2. Greek Civilization courses: at least one broad introductory course (CLCIV 101, CLARCH 221, or HISTORY 200).
