The LSA language requirement for the A.B./B.S. degree may be satisfied with the successful completion of any of the following: MODGREEK 202; both GREEK 301&302 (or equivalent); GREEK 307&308; GREEK 300 and any upper-level course; LATIN 232 or 295 (but not LATIN 194), or any course at the 300- or 400-level which has as a prerequisite one of these courses, or by satisfactory performance on a placement test. The Latin placement test is offered once at the beginning of each term, periodically during each term by arrangement, and throughout the Summer Orientation period. Students are placed into the Department's language sequences according to their demonstrated proficiency.
GREEK 101 & 102 and either of the following sequences:
|Greek (Intensive)||GREEK 103 & 300 followed by any subsequent 300- or 400-level Greek course. (NB: Greek 103 - no credit is give to those who have successfully completed Greek 101 or 102.; Greek 300 - no credit is give to those who have completed Greek 301&302 or 307&308, or any subsequent upper level course.)|
|Traditional Sequence 101, 102, 231, 232||The normal sequence is intended for those with little or no background in Latin who wish to learn the language at the normal pace.|
|Intensive Course Sequence 193 and 194|
|The intensive sequence assumes no prior Latin, and is intended for those who wish to learn Latin very quickly. Prospective majors are strongly encouraged to enroll in this sequence to facilitate movement to upper level courses as quickly as possible, and so to begin to accumulate hours toward the concentration requirements. An additional course at the 300- or 400-level is needed to satisfy the LSA language requirement.|
|Intensive Course Sequence 195 and 295||The intensive sequence assumes no prior Latin, and is intended for those who wish to learn Latin very quickly. These courses, offered through the Residential College, meet four days a week for 2 hours per day. This sequence covers four semesters of the normal Latin sequence in only two, and satisfies the LSA language requirement upon completion of 295.|
|Summer Intensive Course Latin 504||The summer intensive course, Latin 504, assumes no prior knowledge of Latin, and covers at least the first two semesters of the normal sequence in one half term. The final exam serves to place the student into the next course–generally 231 or 232, but sometimes 301, 302, or 401. It may be taken by undergraduate or graduate students; permission of the instructor is required. The Department is occasionally unable to offer Latin 504; check with the Department for each particular summer.|
102 or placement examination
Greek 497, the Junior/Senior Seminar, is highly recommended. The concentration in classical Greek should normally begin in the freshman or sophomore year.
