Certificate in Greek Studies

The Greek Studies Certificate, which combines course offerings from several departments, makes it possible for students to earn the equivalent of a minor in Greek Studies.

Students seeking the Greek Studies Certificate must complete both a language studies component and a focus area component in either: (1) literature and culture, or (2) in archaeology and art history.

The certificate is sponsored by the Center for International Studies in cooperation with the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Fine Arts and Communication, and the Departments of Anthropology, Art and Art History, English, Foreign Languages and Literatures, History, Music, and Philosophy.

Interested students should complete an application form and file it with the Center for International Studies.
