As studied in the context of the Classics, Philosophy, and Religious Studies programs at Lewis & Clark, Ancient Greek is the ancient language of the great texts of antiquity from Homer, Aeschylus, Euripides and Thucydides to the New Testament to the works of Byzantine Greek authors. Its temporal range is from the eighth century BCE to the fifteenth century CE. Thus learning Ancient Greek provides students access in the primary language to many of the most treasured texts in human history.

Our focus in Greek language courses is on acquiring the basic skills necessary to read full texts in Classical and Hellenistic Greek, including works ranging from the New Testament to Thucydides to Homer. Full courses are offered through the 201 level of instruction, and directed studies beyond that can be arranged.

Greek language may be used to fulfill the foreign language requirement.
