Department of Classics

No knowledge of Greek or Latin is required for courses in classical civilization or in ancient history and classical civilization. These courses may not be counted toward fulfillment of any foreign language requirement.

Unless otherwise indicated, all Greek courses are ancient Greek (including New Testament Greek). Students beginning ancient Greek normally follow the regular sequence: Greek 506, 507, 311, and 312K. An intensive sequence is also available: Greek 804 and 412, normally followed by 311.

Students beginning Latin normally follow the regular sequence: Latin 506, 507, 311, and 312K or 316. Students may instead follow an accelerated sequence; information about this sequence is available from the undergraduate departmental adviser. Students with high school or transfer credit in Latin usually begin University coursework at a higher level. To ensure proper placement, students should consult the undergraduate adviser for the Department of Classics before registering.

The information in parentheses after a course number is the Texas Common Course Numbering (TCCN) designation. Only TCCN designations that are exact semester-hour equivalents of University courses are listed here. Additional TCCN information is given in Appendix A.
