The department offers three different undergraduate major tracks and three minors.  Many of our courses can also be used to fulfill General Education and/or CORE requirements.

We offer instruction under three different headings: CLAS, GREK, and LATN. CLAS courses deal with various aspects of the ancient world utilizing English language texts and works of Greek and Latin literature in English translation.  CLAS courses do not provide instruction in the ancient languages nor will they satisfy the Global Engagement requirement in the College of Arts and Humanities. GREK and LATN courses utilize English language texts as well as material in Greek or Latin. They are designed to help students to master the Latin or Greek language and can be used to satisfy the College's Global Engagement requirement.
