Ancient and Medieval Civilizations Minor

The interdepartmental undergraduate minor in Ancient and Medieval Civilizations (AMC) encourages students to study the interrelations among the civilizations of Eurasia and North Africa, and to appreciate how this exchange facilitated material and intellectual development from ancient times through the Middle Ages. These civilizations are approached through courses in history, language and literature, art and archaeology, religion and myth, and law and philosophy.
