The 18-hour minor in Classical Studies is designed to increase students’ knowledge of ancient Greece and Rome and of their continuing influence through the ages. Students are required to complete two courses of Intermediate Latin (LATN 2010 and LATN 2020), for which the prerequisites are LATN 1010 and LATN 1020 or equivalent. A placement test is available in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures.
Interdisciplinary minors require the student to complete a minimum of 15 to 21 hours from a list of specific courses. Unless otherwise noted, a student may take no more than 6 hours of courses from a single department until he or she surpasses the required minimum number of hours necessary for completing the minor. Exceptions to this rule may be found within the discussions of several of the minors. In most cases, a student is also limited to just 3 hours of credit toward the minor in the same department or discipline in which he or she is taking a major. Except for the Paralegal Studies minor, no course may be counted both for major and minor credit. Students must fulfill all departmental prerequisites for any course within an interdisciplinary minor. In some cases, advisors may approve course substitutions within these program requirements.
