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, archaeology and art, religion and myth, and law and philosophy.
The minor consists of 18 credits, divided as follows:
6 credits of select history courses and select courses in material and intellectual development according to the student's area of concentration.
6 credits in Arabic, Chinese, Greek, Hebrew, or Latin selected according to the student's area of concentration.
6 credits in a mixture of the above two categories according to the student's interests.
