The B.A. degree offered through Classics comprises two tracks, reflecting the range of interests in the field, classical languages and classical civilization. Each track requires a different balance of study in courses in the Greek and Latin and languages and courses in classical civilization. The B.A. degree with a major in world religions incorporates several distinct emphasis areas, reflecting the modern range of interest in the field.
The Department offers courses in Greek (GK), Latin (LAT), classical archaeology (CLAR), classical culture and literature (CLAS), and world religions (CLWR). Although there is no specific major in archaeology or classical culture and literature, the classical civilization major offers the opportunity to concentrate in either area. The world religions major also offers a wide choice of coursework, on which to build an individual course of study.
The Department is in the process of revising its two study-abroad programs in Rome and Greece for the new semester calendar. In addition the world religions program is in the process of creating a third program based in Jerusalem.
