A minor in Classics consists of a minimum of six courses (18 credits). Four of these courses must be in ancient Greek or Latin. The remaining two courses are electives chosen from a list of approved courses offered by the Department of History and Classics, although students may choose to substitute one elective with an approved course from an affiliated department.
All courses except ancient Greek and Latin are taught in English and don't require a knowledge of ancient Greek or Latin language.
