Ancient Greek and Roman Studies Minor


Return to Majors and Minors Return to: Majors and Minors

Chair: Claude Stulting, Religion

Ancient Greek and Roman Studies refers to those disciplines which study the culture, civilization and heritage of Greece and Rome from the Bronze Age (3000-1000 B.C.) to the fifth century A.D., and those parts of the Mediterranean basin, Europe, Africa and Asia where these ancient civilizations either originated or spread. Study in this area includes disciplines that critically engage ideas and themes that originated in the classical world and which profoundly influenced later thinkers and institutions.

To fulfill interdisciplinary minor requirements, students must complete at least five courses from at least three separate disciplines which must include:


  • a single course in Classics, Greek or Latin numbered 200 or greater,
  • two capstone essays considering the Ancient Greek and Roman world
  • and, at least four more courses (16 credits) from the following:

Further considerations


Other courses, such as first year seminars, study away programs, and May experiences, may be considered on a case-by-case basis. GRK-201  or LTN-201  are specifically recommended, but not required to meet requirements for this interdisciplinary minor.
