Reading Ancient Greek

If you have a basic knowledge of ancient Greek, use your skills to read and discuss an ancient Greek work that ranges from the timeless epics of Homer to the New Testament. In addition to a strong focus on grammar and syntax, this course includes a fascinating exploration of the historical background and literary interpretation of the selected readings. To the extent possible, commentaries are chosen based upon their capacity to help build grammar and vocabulary. Content changes every semester, so this course may be taken more than once.

Students are strongly encouraged to register by Wednesday, January 30, 2019 to help ensure a seat in the class. Please contact the Department of Foreign Languages at sps.foreignlanguages@nyu.edu with any questions, or call 212-998-7150 to register.
