The period our courses cover extends from the Bronze Age into the early medieval era. During this time the civilizations of Greece and Rome emerged and developed, producing ideas about art, culture and architecture that have influenced world culture ever since. What can the texts and artifacts artifacts of those times tell us about what people thought? What they believed? How they lived? What can they tell us about ourselves? Classical Civilization courses explore those questions.
Many of our Classical Civilization courses (CLCV) do not have prerequisites and are open to everyone. Check the Dynamic Schedule to see which courses will be taught next semester.
