The Department of Classical Studies allows students to design major and minor programs of study with broad exposure or more focused concentration in the fields of language and literature, art and archaeology, and ancient history. Contact our director with any questions or to declare a major or minor.

Language Requirement: Greek or Latin courses may be used to satisfy the Newcomb-Tulane College foreign language requirement. However, any courses used to satisfy the language requirement cannot also be counted toward the major or minor.
Tulane's Language Learning Center has language-specific instructions for placement testing, information about and registration for proficiency testing, links to presentation recordings, and more.
Students interested in teaching can earn certification in Latin through the Teacher Preparation and Certification Program.
Students interested in pursuing graduate study in Classics should consult with their departmental adviser about the undergraduate preparation needed for graduate school. (For information on the 4+1 M.A. program in Classics, see our Graduate Program page.)
