College Level Ancient Greek

11th-Adult+2High school students may be awarded 2 Language credits upon completion of this course.

his course is the equivalent of a typical full-year college level Greek 1 course, introducing fundamentals of Classical Attic Greek grammar, syntax, and reading skills using the textbook Athenaze: An Introduction to Ancient Greek Book I and II. Upon completion of the course, students are prepared to read the works of Homer, Plato, Herodotus, Xenophon, Demosthenes, Euripides, Sophocles, Thucydides etc.

This is a self-paced, independent study, hybrid class.  Students listen to video lectures and submit homework on their own schedule. In addition to the video lectures, the course includes significant instructor guidance and feedback. The instructor grades and corrects homework assignments each week in the CLRC learning management system, Canvas, and provides ongoing email support and guidance as needed. Tuition also includes one or two private meetings per course as needed.

Since it is self-paced, students may complete the course on their own schedule over one, two, three years or more.  Students with no background in Classical Greek who wish to complete the course in 1 year may need to schedule 4-5 hours per week of personal study time.

The course is available for dual enrollment credit thought the University of St. Katherine. USK will issue a transcript with 3 college credits per semester.  These credits are transferable to other colleges and universities.

High school students may be awarded 2 Language credits upon completion of this course.

"Dr. Slatin is a gifted teacher and is incredibly supportive and very detailed in her feedback. After a few months into the class, my daughter decided that she wants to major in classics in college and is looking forward to taking a Greek reading class next year at CLRC."
