IN 2015-16 the Department thoroughly revised the curriculum of the program in Classics.
*Generally, students follow the curriculum as it appears in the GVSU Catalog in the year in which they matriculated. In other words, the year in which you entered GVSU is, generally speaking, your "catalog year."
The Department of Classics offers a major and a minor program in Classics.
Students majoring in Classics select one of three emphases: Classical Languages, Classical Studies, or Latin Secondary Education. Although all three combine the study of language and classical culture, they differ in focus and aim.
Students who plan on graduate work in Classics should be mindful that many graduate programs prefer to admit students who have completed at least one year of advanced work (at the 300 level and above) in both languages; such students should consider pursuing advanced study of the languages beyond the minimum requirements of the major.
