Course Outcomes: 

Greek Morphology

Successful students will refine their mastery of Classical Greek morphology. They will be able to identify fully the forms of nouns, adjectives, verbs (finite and infinitive forms), adverbs, participles, etc.

Greek Grammar and Syntax

Successful students should master Greek grammar and syntax and begin to master Greek rhetoric. While they should be able to recognize and identify grammatical and syntactical constructions-a practice already refined in Greek 201, they should also be able to recognize and identify rhetorical devices employed by the author(s) being read and begin to understand the effect of those devices as employed.

Greek Translation

Successful students should be able to translate a complex Greek prose text into good English.

Place in Literary History

Successful students should be able to locate the literary accomplishments of the chosen author(s) (such as Lysias and Plato) in the context of Greek literature generally and of their own literary context specifically.
