Funding for Winter Session Study of Greek!

Dec. 1, 2023

Congratulations to Julian Thies (Classics and Physiology double major), who has received a Classics Language Tuition scholarship to study Classical Greek 101 during the 2023 Winter Session!

Julian writes: “Within the catalog of Greek literature, I particularly love epic poetry, with the Iliad being a personal favourite, and also love drama, particularly tragedy. I would love to be able to read these various works in the source language. Another major interest of mine with Greek would be the New Testament, as I have a strong connection to that work, and being able to read that in Greek would be an incredible experience for me.”

The Department of Religious Studies and Classics is excited to offer scholarships to University of Arizona students (any major/minor) who would like to begin their study of Ancient Greek this winter!  

GRK 101 - Elementary Classical Greek I will be available fully online during the upcoming Winter Session
