Ancient History

The concentration in Ancient History allows the student to focus on the process of continuity and change. Courses in Greek and Roman history provide a chronological overview while also introducing such topics as food security, women’s experience and the cultural obsession with masculinity, personal prestige and political identity, power dyamics within slave societies, colonialism and cultural hegemony. Students work closely with a faculty member to develop their understanding of the methods of historical analysis, including hands-on experience with coins and inscriptions.
