The Honors Classical Civilization concentration consists of 30 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 3 hours of independent study credit will be earned; the thesis must receive a grade of B+ or higher to permit graduation with Honors.
