All students with previous study or experience in Attic Greek must take a language placement examination during summer orientation or prior to Fall Registration.  They will be placed in the course sequence according to their competence.  Under no circumstances should students with past experience in the language place themselves in courses, especially at the elementary level.

The following course is offered on Greek:

GRE 101, GRE 102. Attic Greek I, II

4 plus 4 hours

These courses will introduce students to the grammatical and syntactical elements of the Attic dialect of 5th century Athens. Mastery of these materials will enable students to read works written by Thucydides, Sophocles, Plato, Aristotle, and other ancient authors of this period. Knowledge of Attic Greek will also provide a foundation for those wishing to study Homeric epic or The New Testament. Prerequisite: None for GRE 101; GRE 101 for GRE 102, or placement by testing.
