Classical Studies Major Requirements

A student may choose to major in classical studies through the college’sinterdisciplinary studies program. Students interested in designing an interdisciplinary major should check with the chair of the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures and work in consultation with an appropriate faculty member in the language to design a major. All such majors should have no less than 33 credits.

Minor Requirements

Students may choose to do a self-designed minor in Latin. This minor consists of 18 credit hours, of which a minimum of 12 credit hours must be taken at the Mount. The minor is available to all students, regardless of major, and is particularly attractive when combined with an interdisciplinary major in classical studies.

Secondary Education Major - Latin

The Mount offers a program in secondary education designed to prepare students to teach at the secondary level in Latin, and to meet requirements for certification in most states (grades 7-12). Each student who plans to teach at the secondary level must have a major in an academic subject field. An advisor in the department of education will be assigned upon the student's admission to a teacher education program. More information can be found through the secondary education program.
