CLSS 460 Reading and Research in Classical Literature

From the wide chronological, thematic, and generic range of ancient classical literature, students will choose-in consultation with the instructor-a topic for their own research. The course work will entail, first, extensive and intensive readings of ancient literature and modern scholarship; second, student research that will lead to a research paper. This course may, and oftentimes will, function as a capstone course for students pursuing a self-designed Classical Civilization major.


Three courses, of which at least two were at the 200-level or higher, in Classical Civilization (CLSS) or related fields, such as ancient art, ancient philosophy, or the rligions of the ancient world
