The concentration in Ancient Mediterranean Studies is one of two within the major of Classical Studies. Through this concentration, students comparatively study multiple cultures in the Near East and Mediterranean basin, including ancient Mesopotamia, Israel, Egypt, Greece and Rome. Our period of study, from the eighth century BCE through the fourth century CE, allows for a particular focus on Greece and Rome, but the approach to the ancient Mediterranean region is interdisciplinary and intercultural. Students in Ancient Mediterranean Studies will examine the ancient literature, archaeology, history, religion, philosophy, and art produced by the network of ancient cultures that relied upon the Mediterranean Sea.
The primary goal of this concentration is to examine critically the ancient beliefs, values, and traditions that have shaped modern cultures. Students in Ancient Mediterranean Studies will acquire additional cultural literacy, becoming better critical thinkers and more engaged global citizens.
