* The language sequence 110, 115, 210 fulfills the three-semester language-requirement for many programs offered by the College of Arts and Sciences.

 

** Courses relating to classical culture typically include ancient Greek or Roman history, ancient philosophy, history of ancient art, Biblical or patristic courses, early Church history or theology, etc., but all courses that stress classical writers, or writings in the classical tradition may be proposed for inclusion (e.g., courses on Petrarch, Montaigne, stoicism and skepticism, classical literary genres like epic, the history of classical rhetoric, etc.).
