The major in classical studies requires an introductory course about the Classical world, three courses in Greek and Latin, three electives in classical studies designated CLA, two electives (any combination of advanced language courses, additional CLA courses, or cross-posted courses in philosophy, political science,or religious studies), and our senior research seminar.
The minor in classical studies requires an introductory course about the Classical world, two courses in a single language (either Greek or Latin), two electives in classical studies designated CLA, and one required elective, either designated CLA or a cross-posted in Classics from philosophy, political science, or religious studies).
If you plan carefully, you can satisfy almost all of the Ways of Knowing requirements and the Justice, Equality, and Community Requirement with CLA courses, making it easy to major in something else as well.
