      Overview

      Ancient World Studies embraces the broad study of the archaeology, material culture, literature, and history of ancient Greece (prehistoric through classical and Hellenistic) and Rome, as well as Egypt and the Near East from 3000 BCE to the 4th Century CE.

      You can choose a variety of subject streams, including archaeology, history, ancient languages and/or texts in translation. These are frequently combined in the study of mythology, philosophy, society, politics, art and architecture, and material culture. Plus, you have the option to focus on a particular time period, geographic region, or thematic area of study.
