Classical Studies Related Fields

In the Department of Classical Studies, we teach a specific body of subject matter pertaining to the civilizations of Graeco-Roman antiquity; to this subject matter we apply the appropriate scholarly methodologies. Among the options for completion of a major in Classical Studies is one that allows for students to take two courses in "Related Fields" offered by other departments. The purpose of the Related Fields option is to provide the student with a broader perspective on the knowledge he or she has acquired in Classical Studies courses. This can be achieved in a number of ways:

  1. By taking courses in which the same subject matter studied in Classical Studies courses or subject matter which is a direct continuation of that studied in Classical Studies courses is viewed from the perspective of a different discipline.
  2. By taking courses in which the methodologies employed in Classical Studies courses are applied to other civilizations.

The following courses, whose relevance to the study of Classical Studies is clear, will automatically be accepted in lieu of the ninth tenth Classical Studies courses.

Courses not on the above list may be reviewed on a case by case basis. Students are invited to submit a written petition in demonstrating the connection(s) between the course and its relation to the knowledge which the student has acquired in the study of Classical Studies. Petitions accepted by the Department may be applied toward the major in Classical Studies as a Related Fields course.

You may register for them through Classical Studies (CLS) or through any of the related programs (ARCH, DR, FAH, HIST, JS, LING, PS) and have them count toward the Classical Studies major or minor requirements.
