Cross-listed courses

Many HS courses are also cross-listed with other departments. What this means is that students have more choices about how they take courses in Greek history, language, and culture. In most cases, you can still have it count towards your major or minor program, no matter what section you enrol in, whether ARCH, GSWS, HIST, HUM, IS or HS.

If you have any questions, please contact the Hellenic Studies Academic Advisor
