MAJOR: ANCIENT HISTORY AND CLASSICAL CIVILIZATION
The Ancient History and Classical Civilization (AHC) major, offered through the Department of Classics, provides the broadest possible exposure to ancient Mediterranean civilization. Study of these dynamic and influential societies is exciting in its own right and valuable also for the historical perspective it contributes to understanding our world today. A typical AHC major takes at least four courses in Greek and Roman history, two additional courses in other pre-modern civilizations, and several others in classical civilization on such topics as archaeology, mythology, and religion. Students will also gain a solid grounding in either Latin or Greek language and literature. AHC majors are encouraged to study abroad to further enrich their study of this field.
