Course Options: This class can be taken as a standalone class or can be taken as part of a certificate program.
Standalone: This course is perfect for anyone who is interested in being able to understand and read the Greek Scriptures. Learning a language is a difficult, but rewarding, task. This course is perfect for anyone who is able to dedicate the time it takes to grasp and retain the language.
Program Path: Those who are looking for a more structured workload will find this course is required two and three-year certificate programs. This class does not have to be taken in a specific order to qualify for certificate credit, although we recommend taking it after you have completed the first year classes. This class counts for 2 quarter hours within the certificate program.
Course Requirements: This class requires you have taken the first two installments of Beginning Greek Grammar. Those who have previously studied Greek are able to test out of the first two classes (which can be arranged by contacting student services). Beyond this, students must have the ability to proficiently read the English language, watch video lectures, have access to and a basic knowledge of a computer with an internet connection.
Workload: The average workload each week is around 6 hours. This includes an hour-long lecture, assigned reading, and writing exercises, vocabulary memorization, workbook completion, and interaction in the class forum. A final exam is also required at the end of the class to complete the course.
