Student Theses

Legend for Colors
blue Ancient History
green Classical Archaeology
orange Classical Languages and Literatures
purple Classical Studies

The substantial essays posted on this page are theses written by Dartmouth undergraduates who were recognized by the faculty of the Department of Classics for their academic achievement by being awarded High Honors in their departmental major (or Highest Honors before 1983) upon graduation. The posted theses are grouped by graduation year (in reverse chronological order) and coded according to departmental major track (in alphabetical sequence, Ancient History, Classical Archaeology, Classical Languages and Literatures, and Classical Studies). Since each thesis must be authorized for public release in pdf form by its author, the pace at which these theses will be posted is difficult to predict as of this date (20 December 2011). The Department of Classics is nevertheless committed to recognizing the excellence of its past students' work in this way as far back in time as it may prove possible to secure the permissions of the student authors in question.
