Interdisciplinary Classical Civilizations is a broad-based area study encompassing the literature, history, linguistics, art and archaeology, philosophy, and religion of Greece, Rome and the Near East from pre-history to late antiquity. For centuries, the study of these vibrant societies has been recognized as essential to a proper understanding of our own culture and, recently, there has been a renewed recognition of the skills such study develops.
All students wishing to enroll in the ICC major must schedule an appointment with the Coordinator or the Academic Advisor of Interdisciplinary Classical Civilizations in order to develop a program of study. Students will be urged to fulfill their General Education and University Exit Requirements, whenever possible, from courses taught within the Classical Civilizations Program. Courses that are applied toward the Gen. Ed. or "Core" Requirements cannot be utilized more than once.
The ICC Major can be fulfilled in one of two ways:
The ICC Major (33 hours minimum) is intended for students who wish to become familiar with aspects of the Classical Heritage of Western Civilization.
The ICC Major with Honors (39 hours minimum) is intended for students who wish to continue their studies beyond the undergraduate level and includes a thesis (3 hours). The student must also maintain a 3.50 GPA within the major and a 3.30 overall GPA.
Students desiring to transfer to USF should complete an A.A. degree at a Florida College System institution. If students transfer with fewer than 60 semester hours of acceptable credit, the students must meet the University's entering freshman requirements including ACT or SAT test scores, GPA, and course requirements. Transfer students are also required to comply with the immunization, foreign language, and continuous enrollment policies of the university.
There are no State Mandated Common Prerequisites for this program.
