The Classics minor is an interdisciplinary minor with participation from departments in the College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences. The field of Classics extends through all aspects of Greek and Roman culture from antiquity through the medieval period. The Classics minor at UCCS is an interdisciplinary program focusing on the study of art, culture, history, literature, philosophy, religion, theatre and women’s studies in conjunction with language training in Greek and Latin. The program aims to integrate these into a larger picture of Greco-Roman culture and, from this perspective, to deepen our understanding of our own.
Participating faculty include: Judith Couchman (VAPA), Brian Duvick (History), Katherine Mack (English), Murray Ross (VAPA), Mary France Smith (Languages and Cultures), Sonja Tanner (Philosophy, Director of Classics), and Tom Wynn (Anthropology).
A total of 26 credits are minimally necessary for graduating with a minor in Classics. Eight of the 26 credits must be either in Latin or in Greek; the remainder may be chosen from the list of approved courses for the minor, at least nine of which must be upper division.
