The Ancient Mediterranean Studies major is a broad study of the languages, literatures, and material cultures from around the Mediterranean in Classical Antiquity. Our primary focus is on the ancient Greek and Roman worlds, as well as the interconnection of those worlds with the wide variety of cultures around the Mediterranean Sea, from North Africa to the North Sea and from the Persian Empire to the Pillars of Heracles. In addition to the Ancient Mediterranean Studies track, which includes courses in such areas as Archaeology, Literature, History, and Philosophy, degree tracks are available in Greek, Latin, and Classical Languages. Students completing the major will be well prepared for a variety of careers and for further study in graduate or other professional schools.
