The Honors Classical Civilization concentration consists of 29 hours. The required core of the major is CLAS 201,which the student must pass with a B+ or higher. 9 hours may be from any courses in the Classics Department numbered 200 and above (excluding CLAS 273). In strict consultation with a departmental advisor, the student pursuing Honors in Classical Civilization will select an additional 15 hours from Classics courses numbered 300 or above, HIST 382 and HIST 400, and PHIL 320, to design a program that will advance his or her understanding of a particular specialty within the field of Classical Civilization. To graduate with Honors, the student must maintain a minimum B+ average in Classics Department courses and a minimum cumulative B+ average at UT. In total, the student must take a minimum of 15 hours of Honors courses, not all of which need to be in the major subject area. The student will present an Honors thesis, for which 2 hours of independent study credit will be earned; the thesis must receive a grade of B+ or higher to permit graduation with Honors.
