Greek Minor

Name of Minor:

Brief description of discipline or subject:
Studying Greek opens up the vibrant world of the ancient Mediterranean and allows a direct engagement with texts that are both foundations of Western culture and living works of literature, philosophy, and history.

Brief description of minor:
The Greek Minor will give you the skills to read a range of works in their original language, including Plato, Sophocles, Thucydides and the New Testament. For students in the arts or humanities, the exposure to ancient Greek culture and literature is irreplaceable. The study of the language itself strengthens analytical abilities which are invaluable to all students, while the knowledge of Greek roots will help master general English vocabulary and scientific terminology.

Requirements for minor:
Complete all lower-division course work (all 1000 and 2000 level classes) or equivalent in Greek, followed by 9 hours of upper division credit in courses taught in Greek. You will need a GPA of 2.5 with no grade below ā€œCā€ in all upper-division Greek courses.
