Classical Humanities Minor
Classics is the study of the ancient Greek and Roman world; the Greek and Latin languages and literature; and the history, art, and culture that have been fundamental in shaping modern society. The minor in classical humanities is ideal for students who would like a structured introduction to ancient Greek and Roman civilization without the need to study one of the classical languages.
In addition to the program requirements listed below, students must:
- take at least nine hours of their minor "core" requirements at UNC–Chapel Hill
- earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.000 in the minor core requirements. Some programs may require higher standards for minor or specific courses.
For more information, please consult the degree requirements section of the catalog.
