The Postbaccalaureate Certificate in Classics requires 18 s.h. in Department of Classics courses numbered 3000 or above (upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses). Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 3.00 to remain in good standing and complete the program.

The program is designed for students who have a bachelor's degree and would like further study in Greek and Latin in order to be competitive for admission to a graduate program in classics. Entry to most graduate programs requires study of both Latin and Greek, normally a minimum of three years in one language and two years in the other. The certificate is designed to be completed in two semesters by students who enter with two years of Latin and one to two years of Greek, or vice versa. 

At least 12 s.h. of the required credit must be earned in Greek and Latin language courses; the remaining 6 s.h. may be earned in approved advanced courses taught in English (prefix CLSA). Transfer credit is not accepted toward the certificate.
