A concentration is the principal field of study in an undergraduate career (equivalent to a "major" at other institutions).
The Department of the Classics offers two concentration tracks:
- Classical Civilizations
- Classical Languages and Literatures
The basic requirements for each track are 11 half-courses (12 for the class of 2018 onwards). The two differ primarily in the distribution between courses in Greek and/or Latin and courses requiring only English. No prior knowledge of a classical language is necessary to pursue a Classics concentration, but students will acquire some language proficiency in each track. Both tracks allow students a great deal of choice in shaping their own plan of study.
