From the Program Director, Dr. Marie Marianetti



The minor in Classical Civilization and the Classical Tradition provides students with an interdisciplinary approach to the literature, culture, history, politics, philosophy, mythology, and archaeology of the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations. The program is offered as a minor field that complements a wide variety of majors. It is particularly valuable for students whose major field of study is in the Arts and Humanities, including English, History, Languages and Literatures, and Philosophy, as well as for certain majors in the social sciences, including Anthropology, Political Science, and Psychology. Ancient Greek and Latin languages are not required for the minor. Students who minor in Classical Civilization and the Classical Tradition conduct their course of study in consultation with the Minor’s Coordinator. They satisfy the College requirement of a minor field by taking four courses (12 credits), at least two of which must be at the 300-level.
