Minors in Classics

Minors offer students an opportunity to pursue a coherent program of study outside the major and gain an additional form of recognition for their academic achievements.  The Classics department offers minors in four areas:

Each minor program requires a set of selected CLAS, GREK, and/or LATN courses; the second and third require at least some work in Latin or Greek at the 300 level or above, and the interdisciplinary minor in Archaeology draws on courses from many departments. Please follow the above links for additional information on these programs.

To apply for admission to any one of the four minors, students should contact (during the academic year) one of the undergraduate advisors in the Department of Classics, Professor Francisco Barrenechea (1210F Marie Mount Hall, email fbarrene@umd.edu) or Professor Lillian Doherty (1210D Marie Mount Hall, emailldoherty@umd.edu); in the summer, please contact Professor Doherty (ldoherty@umd.edu). For more information about any of the minors, contact Professor Doherty.
