Courses offered by Classics aim at reading original works such as Plato's dialogues, classical mythology and drama, or the Bible and developing critical and rhetorical skills.
Greek and Latin are the source of legal, medical and scientific terminology. Many find that working with the classical languages improves their grasp of English and their skills as readers and writers.
Course instruction is conducted primarily in English. There are no language labs.
GRK/LAT 101 are offered in Fall semester only. It is vital to begin instruction in these languages right away.
Students begin reading unadapted original works in the third semester of study (201).
Completion of the fourth semester (202) fulfills the GenEd World Perspectives requirement.
*Biblical Hebrew is not offered in 2014-15.
