Greek Language and Culture

This minor has two tracks:  one in ancient and one in modern Greek.  Both have the same basic requirements, but the language courses must all be taken either in ancient or in modern Greek, not a combination.  Students may begin at the beginning or may be placed in the appropriate level if they have studied Greek elsewhere or spoken it in their families. This minor requires a minimum of 15 credits, 9 of which must be at the 300 or 400 level.  At least one of the upper-level courses must have the GREK prefix.  One or two of the upper-level courses may have the CLAS prefix; these are literature and culture courses taught in English translation.  A student who has never studied Greek before will start with the introductory courses and will need extra credits to complete the minor.          

No course grade below the grade of C- may count toward the minor. An overall GPA of 2.0 in the minor is required for graduation.  A maximum of 6 credits may be counted toward the minor as well as toward a major.
