The Department of Greek and Latin offers three undergraduate minors: Ancient Greek Language and Culture, Latin Language and Roman Culture, and Classical Studies. You may easily begin a language-related minor by completing the Catholic University language requirement in Latin or Greek, since the LAT 103-104 and GR 103-104 courses count towards the minors.
