Concentrations

Concentrations in Classics

A language concentration is a good complement to any major, including that in another language (students majoring in one language may concentrate in another). It includes advanced work in one or more foreign languages and a theoretical study of language as a universal human activity.

In what follows, by "course" is meant a 3-credit course, and by "advanced" is meant 3000-level or above. For all questions or substitutions, please contact Dr. David Sweet, the Chair of Classics.
