Students looking for courses offered by the Classics & Religious Studies Department this spring will need to look for a new course prefix on the course schedule.

Graduate and undergraduate courses that used the CLAR, CLAS, and CLWR prefixes have all been renumbered and given the new prefix CARS, for “Classics and Religious Studies.”

“Since 2003, when the Classics Department became ‘Classics & World Religions,’ we have offered five types of courses: CLAR (Classical Archaeology), CLAS (Classics in Translation), CLWR (Classics: World Religions), GK (Greek), and LAT (Latin). Now that we have become Classics & Religious Studies, we are simplifying the process of signing up for classes so that students don’t have to try three different prefixes to find the class they are looking for,” said Dr. Brian Collins, department chair and the Drs. Ram and Sushila Gawande Chair in Indian Religion and Philosophy.

“Starting in spring of 2022, all the classes except Greek and Latin will be CARS classes,” he added.

There are a few other changes, too, he noted. For instance, the class formerly known as “Old Testament” is now “The Hebrew Bible” to more accurately describe the subject matter.
