The certificate requires 21 credit hours. Learn more.

The certificate program in classical studies is designed for the traditional and non-traditional student who wants to acquire a solid foundation in the Greco-Roman world and its legacy. Students must either have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university or be in the process of completing a bachelor’s degree at The University of Tulsa. Certificate programs consist of between 18 and 24 credits. If a certificate is being completed in lieu of a minor, at least 12 hours must solely fulfill requirements for the certificate. Students interested in fulfilling the requirements of a certificate program should consult the director of the specific program or the College Advising Office.
