What exactly is the difference between a major (or minor) in Classics and one in Classical Civilization?The primary difference between the two major tracks is the amount of focus the student must place on the ancient languages, Latin or Greek. Classics majors are required to take at least 54 credits in Latin and Greek (Latin at or above the 300 level), while Classical Civilization majors must complete at least 9 hours of Latin or Greek at or above the 300 level. The Classical Civilization majors may focus their attention more on ancient history and archaeology. Both majors are required to take the Introduction to Classical Studies course (1 credit) in the senior year and complete a capstone project. Students pursuing the Classics track who start with no Latin experience are advised to take the intensive beginning Latin sequence (15-LATN 104-106) rather than the beginning and intermediate sequence (15-LATN 101-103 and 211-213).
