Notes For All Honours Classical Studies Programs

  1. Students in Classical Studies may take more LAT/GRK courses than the prescribed minimums. The decision whether to graduate in Classical Studies or in Classical Studies (Languages Specialization) may be left until registration in the final year.
  2. Beginning in the second half of third year, students may with the help of the Undergraduate Advisor design proposals for Directed Study. Between two and five term courses in CLAS/LAT/GRK may be taken by Directed Study (between two and three in the case of Joint Honours), of which two would take the place of CLAS 490A/B (Senior Honours Thesis). For further details consult the Department.
  3. In CLAS 490A/B a grade of B- or higher must be achieved; in Directed Study an average of B- or higher must be achieved in the equivalent of two 400-level courses.
  4. Students considering graduate work are strongly encouraged to pursue more than the minimum number of language courses.

Minor Programs
