The Classics as a department is clearly relevant to this web site regarding "Canonical Texts." And if World Canonical Texts is indeed possible as foundation, or at least as a portion of, an emerging discipline of World-Area Studies, then we should expect Classics Department cover similar things as it does for other Area Studies - and indeed it does.
Again, let's start with the course distribution (here I excluded cross-listed courses):
|Level||Classical Archaeology||Classical Studies (Courses in Translation)||Classical Philology||
Courses of Reading
|Primarily for UG||2||3||6||8||19|
|For UG and Grad||2||7||9||9||2||2||5||36|
|Primarily for Grad||1||1||5||5||1||1||1||1||1||17|
1. Like other Area Studies department, this is divided into Languages vs. other aspects. And like the Celtic Department, the Others' portion are mostly based on literary texts - with the small exception of 3 archaeology classes.
2. Modern Greek seems to be slightly out of place in this Department - but understandably so I guess.
3. I scanned through the course catalog - and the following authors are mentioned as course titles: Aristotle's Poetics, Plato's Symposium, Homer, Horace's Odes, Caesar, Senecan Tragedies, Tacitus, Waltharius.
4. Languages requirement for a PhD: Greek, Latin, German; French or Italian.
