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. 

3

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.

4

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.   

5

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.

Please note:

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, and 100 hours must be from within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

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.
