Classical Studies Minor

The Classical Studies Minor guides students as they study of Greek and Roman cultures from the perspective of a variety of disciplines. In addition to completing four intermediate credit hours in one classical language – either Greek or Latin – students will pursue further elective classes in language, art, history, literature, politics, and philosophy.
