The Department of Classics and Archaeology offers a variety of majors: Classics, Greek, Latin, and Classical Civilizations. The Classics major offers a traditional training in both Greek and Latin language and literature (in the original), although students may opt to major exclusively in Greek or Latin. The Classical Civilizations major allows the student to study the cultures of Greece, Rome, and the Near East from various cultural perspectives in conjunction with other departments; in this major, language study is encouraged but not required.
At entry to the University, students declare the major/minor through the Office of Admission. LMU students wishing to declare the major/minor must meet with the chair/program director. The chair/director would ordinarily sign the student’s Change of Program form, provided the student meets certain academic standards that include having a minimum LMU GPA of 2.0 (C) and not otherwise being on academic probation.
