Major requirements


The major requires a minimum of 10 credits.

Ancient Studies is an interdisciplinary major offered through the Greek Latin and Ancient Mediterranean Studies (GLAM) Department. Majors in Ancient Studies choose one of three tracks: Hebrew, Greco-Roman and New Testament.

Students are required to study at least one ancient language (Hebrew, Greek or Latin) and to be able to apply that language in a required two-semester independent research project. In preparation for this independent research project, each track requires students to take two language courses at the 200 level, and additional courses relevant to the ancient world, choosing courses from those offered in the departments of Greek Latin and Ancient Mediterranean Studies, History, Religion, Visual Art and History of Art and Philosophy.

Students should complete the minimum language requirement by the end of the junior year. A minimum of two courses must be at the 300 level. All majors must complete a senior independent research project (two semesters).

  • Two courses in either Greek or Latin at or above the 200 level
  • Two courses in Religion
