The Classical Languages major requires 15 hours of advanced language study beyond GRK 108 and LAT 108, beginning with LAT 112 or GRK 301. Must complete at least 3 semesters in LAT or GRK, and one semester in the other in order to fulfill the BA Language Requirement. 

4

Choose from the approved list of Classical History courses found on the degree requirements tab.

5

Choose from the list of approved Ancient Art & Archeology courses found on the degree requirements tab.

6

Two courses (6 hours) of additional electives are required for the Classical Languages major. See the degree requirements tab for a list of approved elective courses.

7

Typically KU Core Goal 6 is fulfilled by a major course. If an approved Classical Languages 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.

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.
