Study of the Classics and the Ancient Mediterranean World encompasses the cultures of the Ancient Near East (e.g.,Assyria, Egypt, and Persia) and of the Classical world (i.e., Greece and Rome). Students from any major may earn a concentration in Classics and the Ancient Mediterranean World by successfully completing (with a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0) at least six units. Of these units, two must be in the same ancient language (Greek or Latin). A third unit of an ancient language may be counted toward the concentration with the approval of the concentration coordinator. The remaining courses offered for the concentration must come from at least two different disciplines. In addition, no more than three courses from a student’s major may apply to the concentration. Interested students should contact the concentration coordina- tors as soon as possible for help in identifying additional appropriate courses available on campus (including special topics and IL courses) or through overseas studies programs.
