Classical Humanities, B.A.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Arts and Sciences

This program is designed to offer a major for those students who have an interest in the ancient world but prefer breadth rather than specialization in their undergraduate education or seek to pursue the equivalent of a second major. This program combines the minimum number of course requirements with a maximum number of elective courses. The 24 hours of study of the ancient Greek and Roman world will give the student a somewhat intensive knowledge of the cultures, which in time and place are far removed from our own but which have exercised a very strong and continuing influence on modern civilization.
