For students who are pursuing a major other than those offered in the Department of Classics, we offer the opportunity to earn a certificate in Greek or Roman language and culture. The requirements are:
- Three Greek and/or Latin courses — one of which may be at the 200 level; the remaining two must be 300-level courses.
- One of the following options:
a) an additional course in Greek or Latin at the 200 or 300 level
b) a CLA course focusing on the culture of the certificate
c) a substantial paper growing out of one of the courses taken to fulfill the certificate requirement (in addition to the work required in the course)
d) a substantial paper on a topic agreed upon with an instructor in the department and approved by the Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS)
e) with the agreement of the home department and the DUS, by a piece of independent work that will satisfy the requirements of both the home department and Classics certificate.
To qualify for the certificate program, students must file a written application with the Department of Classics before October 1 of their senior year.
