Kenyon's Language Requirement
A year of study at Kenyon in either Latin or Greek satisfies Kenyon's language requirement.
To satisfy the language requirement through previous study in LATIN, a student needs a score of 4 or 5 on any Latin Advanced Placement exam, or a passing grade on the department's proficiency test given during the orientation program as well as on the Wednesday of the 9th full week of classes each semester. In 2012-13, the proficiency examination will be offered on August 27, 2012 at 8:00a.m. in Ascension 326; on October 31, 2012 at 4:15p.m. in Olin 317; and on March 27, 2013 at 4:15p.m. in Olin 317. The examination tests the student on the equivalent of a year of Latin at Kenyon. A grade of 73% is needed to pass the department's Latin proficiency test.
To satisfy the language requirement through previous study in ANCIENT GREEK, a student needs to achieve a passing grade in an examination set by the department during orientation or at a later point in the academic year, but only by arrangement between the student and the department. The examination tests the student on the equivalent of a year of Greek at Kenyon.
Please note that Sanskrit and Biblical Hebrew, when offered on request as independent studies, may NOT be used to satisfy the language requirement.
