Classics, Minor

This interdisciplinary minor provides a foundation in the classics that underlie Western civilization. The coursework includes important literary, philosophical, and myth/meaning threads. The Latin or Greek language component provides a background for the study of Romance and other languages and assists in the proper use of English. Besides its relevance to careers in teaching or the social sciences, this minor also can provide preparation for non-classical professional disciplines such as business, law, and medicine.

Careers

What Can I Do with a Minor in Classics?

You choose a minor with your advisor guidance to complement your major and your personal academic goals. You may be required to complete a minor in a field different than your major.

You may use the same course or courses to satisfy requirements in both a major and a minor as long as at least fifty percent of the units in the minor have a different prefix than the major. You may also use the same course or courses to meet both liberal studies and minor requirements as long as you meet all requirements for the minor.
