Please note the following:
* Since Classical and Medieval Studies is multidisciplinary, to satisfy requirements for the minor students should select courses in philosophy and at least three other disciplines.

** Students may substitute a classical language course, GRK 101 Elementary Classical Greek or LAT 101 Elementary Classical Latin I, for a course in ART, HIS, LIT, or WS.

***Substitutions of new courses or independent studies in classical or medieval studies are possible. Students may also substitute a 6 credit INT course combining any two from ART; HISTORY; LITERATURE; PHILOSOPHY; RELIGIOUS STUDIES or WOMEN’S STUDIES. Examples might include: The Classical World; The Medieval World; Monsters, Maidens and Mayhem: Love, Lust and War in the Middle Ages; Ancient World Empires: From Alexander to Augustus. Substitutions must be approved by the Classical & Medieval Studies Committee.
