[GLAM 120] Beginning Ancient Greek I
Study a language over 3,000 years old in which some of the greatest and most influential works of world literature were composed. In addition to learning grammar, syntax, and vocabulary [you are guaranteed to become etymological savants], you will be exposed to the field of historical linguistics, and in particular to the place of Ancient Greek in the Indo-European language family. Readings in the first semester include selections from Plato [What is the meaning of life?], Herodotus [What is history and why is it so interesting to study the past?], and the New Testament [Got questions about God? This book has answers!].
