Minoring in Greek language and literature, you’ll build uncommon language and analytical skills that will stand out on any resume and in any career. The small program also provides a tightly-knit community of like-minded students. We offer beginning language courses for those students who are new to ancient Greek. We also offer opportunities for study in Greece, Italy, and other countries. 

In the Greek minor you’ll take five semesters of ancient Greek, plus a sixth course chosen from any of our departmental offerings. We recommend Classics 100 (Greek Civilization), or Classics 200 (Greece in the Age of Democracy), or another course on Greek history or culture to complement the Greek language, but the sixth class could also be another Greek course, beginning Latin, Classics 103 (Intro to Classical Archaeology), Classics 224 (Mythology), etc. Note that Greek 126 and 246 (Intensive Beginning and Intermediate Greek) each count as two semesters; we occasionally also offer a non-intensive beginning sequence (Greek 112 and 122).
