Undergraduate Program

The Department offers a single B.A. degree in Classical Studies, with three possible concentrations. See requirements and details for each concentration listed below. *Please note, it is not possible to “double major” in Classical Studies by completing requirements for 2 different concentrations since only one degree is offered.

The Department no longer offers a concentration for Latin High School Teaching, but students interested in teaching should take as much Latin as possible and plan to seek licensure after graduation. Please talk with your major advisor if you think you may want to do this.

We invite ALL students to consider a second major especially in the Classical Civilization concentration. This program was designed to provide a broad-based liberal arts degree which can complement many other majors and serve as an excellent general background for many professional fields, including law, journalism, advertising, and others. The degree can also be completed easily while satisfying University GEC and College requirements by choosing one of the following courses for each category below:
