In order to graduate with an A.B. degree, the student must: (1) complete all required courses in any major; (2) achieve in either Latin or Ancient Greek advanced proficiency, demonstrated by the completion of two courses in one of these languages at the 300 level or above (LATN 305 , LATN 321 , LATN 322 , LATN 323 , LATN 371 , LATN 372 , LATN 373 , LATN 390 , LATN 490  or two courses from GREK 321 , GREK 322 , GREK 323 , GREK 324 , GREK 325 , GREK 326 , GREK 371 , GREK 372 , GREK 390 , GREK 490 )*; (3) complete two in classical civilization (see listing below).

*Note: The Classics A.B. major requires both Greek and Latin languages.


The Registrar as well as the Department of Classics maintains a list of courses that can be used to satisfy this requirement. Classics majors should refer to the School of Languages, Cultures, and World Affairs section of this catalog for A.B. degree requirements. An A.B. degree will replace the B.A. or B.S. degree normally earned with a major, unless the student meets the requirements for a second degree.

The student must have earned a grade point average of 2.500 or higher in the courses used to satisfy the classical languages and classical civilization requirements. Students should select the A.B. degree of their major when declaring online through Program of Study Management (POSM) system. If a student has already declared a major under a different degree, they can use the Change Degree feature in POSM to submit a request for the A.B. degree.
