GREEK 425: Greek Historians

GREEK 425 is a reading course in ancient Greek focusing on one or more of the major ancient Greek historians. The course is designed to advance the student’s fluency in reading Greek prose, while at the same time enriching their understanding of Greek civilization and history by a thematic choice of historical readings. The course may concentrate on one author or may address a thematic issue with readings from a variety of Greek historians (usually Herodotus, Thucydides, or Xenophon, or Polybius). The prerequisite for this course is GREEK 203 or the permission of the instruction. This course may be repeated.
