Minor Programs

CANES Minor Programs

Minor in Ancient Greek

The Greek Minor entails 12 hours of the study of Greek at the 201-level or higher plus 6 hours of upper-division CNE or GRK, or 6 hours at any level in ARA, HEB, or LAT. Normally, a student pursuing the Minor will take GRK 201-301 (or 303)-and two 4xx courses, plus the two electives. This Minor is an excellent choice for Classical and Near Eastern Civilizations majors desiring further specialization in Greek than the Major offers, or for students who have taken Greek to satisfy the CORE and wish to go on with it but cannot declare the Classical Languages Major. This Minor is not open to students pursuing the Classical Languages Major.

NB: Some courses which can be taken to satisfy the Ancient History Minor are not given HIS credit by the History Department.

Minor in Classical and Near Eastern Studies

A comparatively unstructured minor, students can satisfy its requirements with 18 hours of any upper-division courses (300-, 400- or 500-level) under the CNE rubric. This Minor is good for students who have taken some CANES courses, like the field and want to take more courses, but haven't time for the Major, or to satisfy the breadth requirements of the other Minors. It is also an excellent complement to the Classical Languages Major for those wishing to add cultural studies to their study of language, or desiring to go on to graduate study in Classics. This Minor is not open to students pursuing the Classical and Near Eastern Civilizations Major.
