Greek, Minor

Saint Louis University offers a minor in the Ancient Greek language and its literature.  To complete the minor, students take 18 credit hours of Ancient Greek (GK) courses at any level or courses fulfilling a Greek elective. Ancient Greek classes at SLU are small and interdisciplinary, encouraging open and collaborative dialogue among students and instructors.  Our courses concentrate on reading culturally formative writings in their original Greek, focusing not only on well-known classical texts but also ones written in Koine and Byzantine Greek.
