Single Honors Classics
The single honors degree in Classics is designed for those who wish to study both Latin and ancient Greek and to read classical texts in their original language. Both languages are studied for the four years of the degree. The texts studied cover a wide variety of texts, including epic, drama, lyric poetry, philosophy and history writers. The main emphasis of both beginners' and non-beginners' courses is on classical literature and thought viewed within its cultural context. Ancient history and elements of Classical art and archaeology are studied in conjunction with the Greek and Latin languages and literatures. This encourages a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach to classical culture.
Greek A and Latin A are designed for those who have already studied ancient Greek and Latin in school, and who wish to continue to read classical literature in the original languages. Students who have one classical language when they start at College may learn the other language from scratch (Latin or Greek B), but it is not possible to study both languages at beginners level.
