Degrees Offered

NOTE: Students wishing to pursue Classics at the graduate level are strongly advised to pursue a BA Honours in Classics, and to take as many courses in the ancient languages as possible.

 

Sample Curricula

  • A variety of Classics civilization courses are cross-listed with other departments, and so may be taken for credit under the cross-listing departments’ numbers by majors who are in danger of exceeding their maximum number of credits in Classics.
  • The curriculum provided below for any given degree is an example of what a student might choose to take, but suggested classical civilization courses might be substituted for other classical civilization courses of equivalent credit, as few civilization courses have prerequisites. All language courses after Introduction to Latin I and Introduction to Ancient Greek I have prerequisites placed upon them.
