CLSS 351 Special Topics in Classical Literature in Translation

From the wide chronological, thematic, and generic range of ancient classical literature, students will explore in-depth a special topic in Classical literature in translation and essential accompanying secondary literature. The course work entails, first, extensive readings of ancient literature and modern scholarship; second, writing assignments of various types that will eventually lead to a clearly-argued final essay. This course is recommended for, but not restricted to, students pursuing a minor or self-designed major in Classical Civilization.


Two courses, of which at least one was at the 200-level in Classical Civilization (CLSS) or related fields, such as ancient art, ancient philosophy, or the religions of the ancient world
