Students are introduced to archaeological, historical and literary approaches that offer substantial exposure to the multidisciplinary aspects of the ancient Mediterranean and Near East. The complementary nature of our Classics, Near Eastern, and Religious Studies programs provide our students with insight into the complexity and scope of human civilization as they learn how ancient cultures are intertwined. Undergraduates and graduates are encouraged to explore the boundaries between the Greco-Roman world and the ancient Near East, deepening their understanding and making for a rich learning experience.
