GRK 101 Elementary Greek

Study of alphabet, pronunciation, grammar, and culture of Ancient Greece. Students will engage, from the beginning, with original texts from Homer, Sophocles, Plato and others. Focus will be placed on the ways in which the syntactic and semantic content of this language helped constitute the unique sense of the world that belonged to the Ancient Greeks, a worldview which even now continues to exert a tremendous influence on world history and culture.
