Both languages offered by Greek and Roman Studies-Ancient Greek and Latin-fulfill the foreign language requirement for the B.A. degree, the Non-Native Language Compass Requirement, and the requirements for Phi Beta Kappa. Students who have had Greek or Latin in high school must take a placement test administered by the department before registering for any class. To make satisfactory progress and register for the next course in a language sequence, all students must earn a final grade of D or better from the first through third semester language courses.

2000-level courses are intended for third-semester work. Intermediate readers (e.g. 4th through 6th semester) should take 3000-level courses. 4000-level courses are for advanced students (5th semester or beyond) and are taught together with 3000-level classes but include instruction in disciplinary research tools and a seminar paper.

Greek and Roman Civilization (GRCV) courses are conducted in English; they are open to all students for elective and credit/no credit. Different courses in this sequence will be offered from semester to semester.

Those who intend to go to graduate school in Greek and Roman Studies / Classical Studies should take as many Greek and Latin courses as possible. 

Majors and minors are encouraged to travel abroad as part of their cur­riculum, either by traveling to Greece and/or Italy at the end of the spring term with one of the Millsaps College faculty-led abroad courses, or by studying for a summer or semester in Italy or Greece.
