  2. With the approval of the Department of Classics and the Office of the Dean of the Faculty of Humanities, students who have completed 60 units of work of any Honours program in Classics may replace all or part of their Level III work by courses of study at a university or equivalent institution abroad. Consult the Department for further details.
  3. Students may receive up to six units of credit for archaeological field work at an approved Classical site. Consult the Department for further details.
  4. Students are encouraged to include at least six units of Greek or Latin in their program. GREEK 1Z03 , 1ZZ3  and LATIN 1Z03 , 1ZZ3 , if not completed in the Level I program, may be taken to fulfill the degree requirements. Students intending to do graduate work in the field of Classics should note that most universities offering such programs require several years of undergraduate work in both Greek and Latin for admission. These students are strongly encouraged to include Greek and Latin courses as early as possible in their program.
  5. Students intending to do graduate work in the field of Classics may wish to include an independent study course (CLASSICS 4T03 A/B S ) in the final level of their program.
