The classics department offers courses at all levels of Greek and Latin as well as courses in English about ancient Greece and Rome. The intermediate level (Latin 202 or two courses in Greek at the 200-level) satisfies the language specific standard, and one additional course at the advanced-intermediate or advanced level satisfies the fine arts and literature distributional standard. All courses in English satisfy either the humanistic studies distributional standard or the fine arts and literature distributional standard.
Greek and Roman History, Ancient Myth in Literature, and Gender and Sexuality in Classical Antiquity are each offered in alternate years. Examples of recent special topics courses taught in English at the advanced level include Freedom and Justice in Classical Antiquity (Fall 2014) and Disease and Disability in Ancient Literature (Spring 2014). Spring 2015 brings a course in Roman Law, and The Classical Tradition in Post-Colonial Literature is planned for Spring 2016.
