Ancient & Medieval Civilizations

   The Ancient and Medieval Civilizations Major: This major encourages students to study the give-and-take among the contiguous civilizations of Eurasia and North Africa, and to appreciate how this exchange facilitated material and intellectual development from the earliest times through the Middle Ages. These civilizations are approached through courses in history, language and literature, archaeology and art, anthropology, religion and myth, technology, law, and philosophy. Students may choose to concentrate either in Classical or in Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations. Complementary courses in the concentration not chosen, as well as in related subjects, should be selected with the help of an advisor. The ancient and medieval civilizations program provides an excellent general education in the humanities, as well as a foundation for graduate studies or professional training, such as law.
