Minor in Ancient History

The minor in Ancient History focuses on the content and methods of historical study, and may include a focus on other ancient mediterranean and global cultures, not just Greece and Rome.

The minor consists of six courses, configured as follows:

  • 1 required core introductory course: ANCH 025 Ancient Middle Eastern History and Civilization, ANCH 026 Ancient Greece, or ANCH 027 Ancient Rome
  • Any 5 other courses in Ancient History (ANCH), Classical Studies (CLST), Greek (GREK), Latin (LATN), or other departments focusing on ancient studies, as approved by the Undergraduate Chair in Classical Studies.

Students who have taken introductory and intermediate courses in Latin and/or Greek (i.e., at the 100- and 200-level) may use some of these courses toward the minor with the approval of the Undergraduate Chair; but in such cases it may be preferable to take the Minor in Classical Studies.

Students interested in declaring a minor should meet with the Undergraduate Chair as early as possible to plan their coursework.
