This concentration focuses on the material remains of prehistoric and classical antiquity, while also providing a background in civilization, history, and at least one classical language. The program of study is designed to give students a basic knowledge of the art and architecture of the Greeks and Romans and to introduce them to the use of archaeology in the reconstruction of the past, including Egypt and the ancient Near East. Although the focus is on classical Greek and Roman civilization, the courses offered also cover the Bronze and Early Iron Age Aegean and Anatolia.

This concentration is designed to provide students with a broad knowledge of the classical world. It requires introductory surveys of Greek and Roman civilization, to ensure that students have familiarity with both the major classical cultures. It uses the skills in analysis, written and oral communication, and logical argument that will be applicable in any profession. It also requires a survey of either Greek or Roman archaeology or either Greek or Latin language through the fourth semester, to ensure that they have grounding in the field s two primary disciplines, archaeology and philology. Beyond this set of core requirements, however, it gives students flexibility to pursue their individual interests by taking any intermediate or advance course in the ancient Mediterranean world, including those offered by the departments of History and Philosophy. The concentration in Classical Civilization is a particularly good option for students who are interested in Classics as a second major, but it is not designed to lead to graduate work in classics.
