In this course the most important parts of the Iliad and the Odyssey are read in two successive years.

The courses marked "advanced” are open to graduates and undergraduates who have completed courses 1a (or 1), 2 and 7A, together with the special prerequisites named under the several courses.

Teachers' Certificates.
