Classical Languages, Minor

This is the first version of the 2024–25 General Catalog. Please check back regularly for changes. The final edition and the historical PDF will be published during the fall semester.

A minor in classical languages is an excellent way to solidify skills in the modern English language while expanding a student's interest in ancient Mediterranean cultures. Students gain a solid understanding of both ancient Greek and Latin.

Learning Outcomes

Students are expected to demonstrate:

  • the ability to read the ancient Greek and Latin languages at an intermediate to advanced level;
  • knowledge of major literary works and written sources of the ancient Mediterranean world; and
  • transferable linguistic and analytic skills by studying the ancient languages that stand behind the vocabulary and structure of English and the Romance languages.
