In C308 Roman Law, students learn about the Roman legal system and they practice of legal analysis. This semester we focus on water rights and public resources, investigating how Romans regulated rivers and aqueducts.
Most students begin with CLAS-L100: Elementary Latin I (if focusing on Latin), or CLAS-G100: Elementary Greek I (if focusing on Classical Greek). If you have previous Latin or Classical Greek language experience, your language placement will depend on your: Latin Foreign Language Placement Exam; successful completion of an in-person placement test for Classical Greek; or AP credit.
We offer introductory and advanced civilization classes on Roman or Greek culture, classical mythology, classical art and archaeology, film, and more. And, all of our Classical Civilization majors complete a senior capstone, which focuses on a special topic each fall semester. Examples include: early Rome, ancient sexualities, the Trojan War, and the Athenian aristocracy.
