Classics offers courses in the languages and cultures of the ancient Greek and Roman worlds. The department offers majors in Classics, Greek, Latin and participates in the Ancient Greek and Roman Studies Minor .
Incoming freshmen and transfer students who have previously studied Latin should complete a placement test in the language. Those who intend to continue study in Latin must complete the placement test. The placement test determines the lowest level at which students may receive credit and where they must begin their study of the language at Furman.
There is no placement test for ancient Greek. Students who have studied Greek must consult with the department chair to determine placement.
One first year writing seminar taught by a member of the department may also, with approval, contribute to the major.
