Transferring classics courses to school without classics programs? [Mar. 25th, 2008|07:44 pm]

Hey all -

This is an odd question that only a few of you will be able to answer, but it's a diverse group, right?

I'm considering taking a distance class from UW in classical mythology, and using it to fulfill an English department requirement at OSU. Thing is, it's offered by UW's Classics department, so on the transfer transcript it would read something like CLAS 453. OSU doesn't have a Classics department, so university administrators may or may not be astute enough to understand it was a literature class. (The English department does, however, offer courses in classical mythology from time to time.)

Have any of you transferred Classics courses of this type (but that were offered by Classics departments) to OSU, any Oregon universities, or just a school that did not have a Classics program?

I have a couple of backup plans, so don't bother suggesting other options. Just answer the question. Thanks.
