Greek, 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 Greek is an excellent way to pursue the study of ancient Greek beyond the General Education World Languages courses and to explore an interest in reading famous authors and philosophers (Homer, Plato, and others) in their native language.

Learning Outcomes

Students are expected to demonstrate:

  • the ability to read ancient Greek at an intermediate to advanced level;
  • knowledge of major literary works and written sources from the ancient Greek world; and
