HIS 319 - Greece and Rome


3 credits
This course covers the histories of Classical Greece and Rome from ca. 800 BC- 500 AD. The Greeks and the Romans regularly interacted and their histories overlap in many ways. Greek culture reached its peak earlier than Roman, but neither was independent of the other. In this class we will explore the written and material records to develop a fuller understanding of Classical Mediterranean history and discover the many ways in which Greek and Roman history shapes the modern world. May be taken as a 400 level thesis course with instructor approval. Course may not be repeated if already taken at the 300 level.
Term Offered: Fall semester
