The Classics Program at UNH offers courses under three rubrics leading to three majors.
A Note About Courses
Classics (CLAS) courses are those which do not require or lead to a command of the Latin or Greek languages. This category does, however, contain courses in languages other than Latin and Greek, namely Hittite and Sanskrit. For the most part Classics courses focus on the history, culture, religion, art and society of the Greeks and the Romans and their legacy to the civilization of the West.
Greek (GREK) courses are those concerned with the Greek language, both ancient and modern.
Latin (LATN) courses are those concerned with the Latin language.
Classics. The Classics major requires 40 units of coursework (most courses are 4 units). 24 of these units must come from GREK or LATN courses, the remainder from CLAS, GREK or LATN. The only further requirement is that at least one course must be in a GREK or LATN class at the 700 level. Students may also under certain circumstances count courses focusing on Greek or Roman culture which might be taught by other units of the University (History, Art History, etc.). Such exceptions must be approved in advance by the student's advisor in Classics.
Greek. The Greek major requires 32 units of coursework (most courses are 4 units), all of which must be under the GREK rubric (this includes GREK 401-402). A Greek major must complete at least one GREK course at the 700 level.
Latin. The Latin major requires 32 units of coursework (most courses are 4 units), all of which must be under the LATN rubric and above the level of 402 (that is, LATN 401-402 do not count for a Latin major). A Latin major must complete at least one LATN course at the 700 level.
