2022-2023 Undergraduate & Graduate Catalog
A minimum of 21 credits are required.
The classics minor is designed to be flexible and to serve students with an interest in the classical world whose plans do not allow them to complete the major. At the same time, work done toward the minor is completely and seamlessly transferable toward the major, should an opportunity arise to do so.
