At least 8 of the 24 Classical Languages hours must be GREK/LATN upper division (300/400-level). Students with beginning to intermediate knowledge of one of these classical languages prior to matriculation may, upon obtaining departmental approval, substitute for those hours the equivalent number of hours in any other HEBR/GREK/LATN courses for a total of 24 Classical Languages hours.
All completed in residence.
For this major, students should watch for GREK/LATN readings in the Church Fathers, but these are not offered every year. These will be GREK 342 “NT and Patristics,” or LATN 333, LATN 487, LATN 489 or GREK 334, GREK 487, GREK 489 when any of these is devoted to a Church Father.
12 of the 16 hours of the companion discipline can count toward a second major.
