The BA requires completion of two courses of collegiate-level writing instruction. Students who test out of Composition will still need to complete ENGL 102 (or equivalent) and one additional Goal 2.1 course.
Visit this website for a list of courses that fulfill the BA Quantitative Reasoning requirement.
The Classical Antiquity major has two tracks: Classical Archaeology and Classical Humanities. 6 hours from approved courses on List A and List B are required for both tracks. A remaining 9 hours of coursework should be chosen from either List A or List B depending on your track. To review these requirements the lists of approved courses, visit the degree requirements tab.
Both tracks within the Classical Antiquity major require 9 hours chosen from List C, for a list of approved courses see the degree requirements tab.
Typically KU Core Goal 6 is fulfilled by a major course. If an approved Classical Antiquity course is not available to fulfill Goal 6, another course will need to be chosen. A free elective may need to be used to meet Goal 6 course pre-requisites.
All students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences are required to completed 120 total hours of which 45 hours must be at the Jr/Sr (300+) level.
The same course cannot be used to fulfill more than one KU Core Goal. However, overlap of a KU Core course with a major or degree-specific requirement is allowed. Overlapping is recommended to allow more opportunities to explore other majors and/or minors.
