About

The Classical Languages (Classics, Greek and Latin) major program from Amherst College is designed to afford access to the achievements of Greek and Roman antiquity through mastery of the ancient languages. 

Overview

Key Features

The department offers majors in Greek, in Latin, and in classics, which is a combination of the two languages in any proportion as long as no fewer than two semester courses are taken in either. All three majors consist of eight semester courses, of which seven must be in the ancient languages. The eighth may be a classical civilization course, PHIL 217, or a course in some related field approved in advance by the department. Courses numbered 111 may not be counted toward the major. Latin 202 through 316 will normally be introductory to higher courses in Latin, and Greek 212 through 318 will serve the same function in Greek.

Upon graduation, a major in the Classical Languages (Classics, Greek and Latin) program from Amherst College should be able to

  • read Classical texts within their cultural and historical settings (Roman texts for Latin majors, Greek texts for Greek majors, and both for classics majors);
  • read texts critically and analyze them closely;
  • write clearly and persuasively;
  • conduct basic research necessary for the study of the classical world;
  • pursue graduate work in classics or a career in teaching Latin and/or Greek at the secondary school level.
