Until now, undergrads who wanted to major in the study of classical texts needed to come into the concentration with at least an intermediate level of Latin or Greek. But those students will no longer even have to learn either language to receive a degree in classics."
What's next - maybe that doctors don't have to know medicin, or that astronomers don't have to know any mathematics?
