Time to complete the Certificate in Greek

The Certificate in Greek can be completed in a minimum of one two-semester academic year for students who enter with intermediate-level language studies already completed and who are able to test directly into advanced-level courses. Summer study in this case is required for efficiency's sake (see below).

The Certificate in Greek may also be completed gradually, in which case this potential timeline need not apply.

Courses enclosed within square brackets in the schedule below are elementary- and intermediate-level courses that are available, if necessary, to bring language skills up to the level required to begin certificate studies. The credit hours for these bracketed courses do not count towards the total credit hours required for the certificate.
