Classics at William Jewell Adds New Capstone Courses

The Roman Forum

This week the faculty of William Jewell College approved two new courses for the Classics program. The Languages Department currently offers a Classical Humanities Minor, an interdisciplinary course of study in classical languages and literatures, either Latin or Greek, history, and other related elective courses. With the new addition of the two 301 Survey of Latin or Greek Literature courses, the 415 Capstone Project course is for students completing the classical humanities minor (or a self-designed Classics Major) with either a Latin or Greek emphasis in which they will use their knowledge of ancient Roman or Greek history and their abilities to read original Latin or Greek authors to pursue research in an area of special interest, culminating in a formal paper and some sort of public presentation.
