y1llabus of Qourars
I. DEPARTMENT OF ANCIENT LANGUAGES.
112.-Preparatory Greek Course. No credit is given for this
course taken alone. Two hours a week given to this course will
enable the student to get a grasp of the elements of the language
so that he may use lexicons and grammars to some advantage
should he have no more Greek in school; but this course is given
in an effort to make the First Year (Greek 113, 123, and 133)
easier and to prevent so many failures there. It is thought that
this preliminary study will amply repay the student and that it
will give him a good start that will enable him to be master of the
later work in Greek, rather than become lost in mass of it.

students, regardless of their knowledge of the language. It is a
reading of English translations of the best selections from Greek
classics. It will cover the entire age of Greek Literature and will
touch the best works in the several fields, prose and poetry, epic,
lyric, drama, tragedy, comedy. While this does not take the place
of studies in the originals, it will give a passing acquaintance with
the masters of Greek thought and literature and will help much
