Classical Civilization Minors | LSU Foreign Languages and Literatures

Our Minors

We also three minors: Greek, Latin, and Classical Civilization. While the first two concentrate on the ancient languages, the third focuses on reading literature in translation as well as looking at the ancient world from a variety of perspectives.

To complete a minor in Greek or Latin you need to take the first 4 courses in that language and then an additional 2 classes in the language at the 4000-level. The Classical Civilization minor requires 16 hours in Greek, Latin, Classical Studies, and approved courses outside the department; at least 6 hours must be at or above the 3000-level.

If you are taking Greek or Latin to fulfill your language requirement, it is relatively easy to get one of these minors, and they can really help you stand out!
