Minor Requirements Semester Hours

Track I: Greek and/or Latin Language and Literature

Greek and/or Latin: 12 credits of language (Note: Students should designate either Greek or Latin as the primary field of language study. Only courses above the introductory sequence (GREK 1013-1023 and LATN 1014-1024) of the primary language count towards the minor. If a student takes the secondary language as well, all credits taken in that language as well as all credits in the primary language above the 1000-level count towards the minor. If a student has learned the equivalent of the introductory sequence in the primary language before beginning language study at CU and begins language instruction in the department at the 2000-level or above, all credits in both languages immediately count towards the minor.)

With the approval of the undergraduate faculty advisor, additional upper-division Greek or Latin courses may be substituted in place of classical literature, culture and thought or ancient history, art and archaeology courses.

Electives: 6 credits (classical literature, culture and thought or ancient history, art and archaeology courses listed under Track II)
