Minor in Classics

The study of foreign languages and literatures opens your mind to cultures, societies, and histories around the world. 

The Department of Foreign Languages & Literatures equips well-rounded students for entry into the global community. A minor in classics broadens students’ understanding of society through cultural exchange in Greek and Latin and provides them with communication skills, linguistic dexterity, critical thinking, and cultural awareness. These cultural insights and practical tools help graduates find their place in today’s competitive, multilingual marketplace.

Diverse course offerings range from basic-intermediate-advanced language studies and traditional linguistics and literature courses to topic-driven courses in film, cultural identity, and foreign language business. Students also can benefit from interdisciplinary “Languages Across the Curriculum” and service-learning outreach courses that extend the classroom beyond the traditional campus.

A minor in classics requires a total of 15 semester hours in Greek or Latin (minimum 9 hours at 3000 level or above).
