Classical Studies

Four-Year General Classical Studies

Continuation in this academic plan requires a cumulative minimum overall average of 60% and a cumulative minimum Classical Studies major average of 65%.

Eligibility for graduation in the Four-Year General Classical Studies academic plan includes successful completion of the following requirements:

  1. Appropriate Program-level requirements. See Bachelor of Arts Degree Requirements.
  2. Classical Studies Plan-level requirements:


  1. Knowledge of neither Latin nor Greek is required to obtain a degree in Classical Studies. However, any LAT or GRK courses taken will be used to complete the Classical Studies plan-level requirements and will be used to calculate the Classical Studies major average.
  2. The senior seminar requirement is generally met by completing two regular senior seminars (CLAS 486), worth 0.5 unit each. In exceptional circumstances and with the prior approval of the Department, a student may write a Senior Honours Thesis, CLAS 490A/CLAS 490B worth 1.0 unit, or a student may combine one regular senior seminar (CLAS 486) with a directed study (CLAS 492).
