A knowledge of Latin or Greek is not required for courses in classical civilization. Classical civilization courses may not be counted as foreign language credit, though they may be counted toward a minor in some degree programs. Courses in classical civilization may be used to satisfy the Area D requirement for the Bachelor of Arts, Plan I. For further information, consult the undergraduate adviser for the Department of Classics.
Unless otherwise entitled, all Greek courses are ancient Greek (including New Testament Greek).
GREEK FOR DEGREE REQUIREMENTS. Both the courses in ancient Greek and modern Greek (GK 502, 503, and 310) may be used to satisfy the foreign language requirement and the Area D requirement for the Bachelor of Arts, Plan I. For further information, see The Undergraduate Catalog.
LOWER-DIVISION SEQUENCES. Students beginning ancient Greek ordinarily take the regular sequence, GK 506 and 507, or the accelerated course 606Q, followed by either 311 and 312K or 319 and 328. As an alternative, students may take the summer intensive sequence, GK 804 and 412, followed by either 311 and 319 or, for students with grades of A in the intensive courses, GK 324. Students who finish the intensive sequence will have completed three semesters' work toward fulfillment of the foreign language requirement for the Bachelor of Arts, Plan I. Students may shift from one sequence to the other with the consent of the undergraduate adviser. For further information, consult the undergraduate adviser.
LATIN FOR DEGREE REQUIREMENTS. Latin courses may be used to satisfy the foreign language requirement and the Area D requirement for the Bachelor of Arts, Plan I. For further information, see The Undergraduate Catalog.
LOWER-DIVISION SEQUENCES. In general, students with no previous credit in Latin, from high school or another college, should follow the regular sequence (LAT 506, 507, 311, and 312K or 312M or 316). However, advanced and graduate students and students with a strong linguistic background should follow the accelerated sequence (LAT 506Q or 508, 311, and 312K or 312M or 316). Advanced students with a grade of A in LAT 506Q, 507, or 508 may take LAT 511K (Accelerated Latin II).

Students with high school or transfer credit in Latin usually begin Latin at a higher level. For instance, with two entrance units in Latin, a student should register for LAT 508 and then continue with LAT 311 and 312K or 312M or 316. LAT 508 offers a review of fundamentals equivalent to LAT 506 and 507. Students with three units of Latin should begin with LAT 311, and those with four units should begin with LAT 312K, 312M, or 316. For further information, consult the undergraduate adviser.
PLACEMENT TESTS. A placement test in Latin is administered prior to the fall and spring registration periods (in August and March/April, respectively). The test is not mandatory, but may be taken by students who wish to earn credit by examination for LAT 506, 507, 311, and 312K or 312M. For further information, consult the undergraduate adviser or the Measurement and Evaluation Center, 2616 Wichita (471-3032).
