The Classical Art and Archaeology degree program at University of Kansas consists of 30 hours, whether one chooses the thesis or non-thesis option. 


This Classical Art and Archaeology track is designed for students who wish to supplement advanced study in Greek and Latin with additional research in the material remains of the Greek and Roman worlds. As with the track in Classical Languages, the student may stress either Latin or Greek or a combination of both.

Learning outcomes

Students at University of Kansas who take only one of the ancient languages at the graduate level must present the equivalent of at least one year of elementary college-level in the other; this requirement may also be satisfied by passing a departmental examination. For a research skill, the student must demonstrate a reading knowledge of German, French, or Italian before receiving the M.A. (see the graduate handbook for details).

Students may select their 30 hours from graduate courses in Greek, Latin, and Classics, as well as certain courses in philosophy, history, art history, and linguistics that have been approved by the Department. Students with no undergraduate preparation in Greek and/or Roman art and archaeology must enroll in CLSX 528 or an equivalent course at some point in their graduate career. Fifteen of the hours required for the M.A. must be in graduate coursework in Greek and/or Latin.
