ADDITION OF A MAJOR IN CLASSICAL ARCHAEOLOGY
FOR THE BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE IN
THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG 2006-2008



On page 273, under the heading DEGREES, in the MAJORS AND MINORS subsection in the College of Liberal Arts chapter of the Undergraduate Catalog, 2004-2006, make the following changes:


Classical Archaeology

Students majoring in classical archaeology must use Greek or Latin to fulfill the Area A foreign language requirement. Coursework counted toward the foreign language requirement may not also be counted toward the major.

Major: Thirty-six semester hours of coursework, at least eighteen of which must be upper-division, consisting of


1. Classical Civilization 302K, Introduction to Archaeological Studies II: Classical Archaeology.

2. Classical Civilization 307K, Topics in Archaeology, or 340, Advanced Topics in Archaeology.

3. Three hours of approved upper-division coursework in archaeological techniques and analysis. A list of approved courses is available in the Department of Classics.

4. Three hours of upper-division foreign study approved by the classical archaeology faculty adviser, to be provided by Classical Civilization 362 or another approved course.

5. Three hours of upper-division coursework in Greek history or Roman history, chosen from topics of Ancient History and Classical Civilization 325, topics of Ancient History and Classical Civilization 378, and approved topics of Classical Civilization 335.

6. Three hours of upper-division coursework in ancient art history, chosen from Art History 325, 327J, 327L, 327M, 327N, 327P, 327R, and other approved courses in ancient art history.

7. Six hours of upper-division coursework in either Greek or Latin.

8. Three additional hours of coursework in either classical civilization or ancient history and classical civilization.

9. Anthropology 304, Middle Eastern Studies 320, or three additional hours of coursework in classical civilization or ancient history and classical civilization.

10. Six additional hours of coursework in the areas listed in requirements 1 through 9.



RATIONALE: The archaeological studies major, previously administered through the anthropology department and through which a classical archaeology concentration was offered, was discontinued effective Fall 2004. However, student demand for a classical archaeology major still exists, and faculty in both the classics and the anthropology departments agree that students would be best served by creating a classical archaeology major within the classics department.
