Ancient History Major and Minor

Major: The only one of the five Classics tracks that does not require language study, Ancient History is ideal for students who want a thorough understanding of the ancient world through its history and artifacts but do not yet have an interest in starting or continuing Latin or Ancient Greek. Ancient History works well as a double major with Archaeology, History, and Political Science. This track may also be customized for students interested in Classics graduate study.

Minor: Students are required to take a minimum of five courses in history, art history, and archaeology. Courses listed in the department's cognate course list may be substituted for one or more of these courses with prior written approval from the undergraduate director; written approval must be submitted to the student services officer for inclusion in the student's academic file prior to the end of the term in which the course is taken. In addition to the five required courses, students must take CLASSGEN 176, Majors Seminar. Courses offered in Latin and Greek that focus on historical topics or authors may count toward this minor.
