Classics Courses for Fall 2017
Go back

The following courses are open for all students for Fall 2018.  Courses with the CLAS prefix are in English.  GREK and LATN prefixes are courses in Greek and Latin language.  No prior knowledge of any language is required or expected for CLAS courses, or for 1010 language courses. Note that our elementary language courses are now taught on a 3 day per week schedule, so they will not interfere with your science labs or other T/R courses.

There is a severe shortage nationwide of high school Latin teachers, so if you want a job when you graduate, please consider teaching Latin. If you are in Elementary Education, you will have to teach ancient civilizations and (especially in sixth grade) Greek and Roman mythology.  We offer mythology, CLAS 3310, as an on-line course every semester including during the summer.  Learn it now when you can get credit for it and have some fun!

Classics students consistently achieve the highest scores on the LSAT, and Classics is also extremely helpful for medical school.  All science majors will benefit from both Greek and Latin.

Our majors go on to graduate school, they teach, they go on archaeological digs in the Mediterranean, they have fun!  Small classes, lots of attention.  Come on, JOIN US!
