Classics Major: Ancient Mediterranean Civilizations Option B.A.
What is the study of ancient Mediterranean civilizations?
In studying the classics, you’ll explore fundamental questions of human life and discover how these have been answered by thinkers, artists and writers from the ancient world. You’ll study topics including ancient Greek and Roman history, language, mythology, politics and culture. The flexibility of the ancient Mediterranean civilizations degree option provides the opportunity to take courses covering neighboring populations in Europe, North Africa and the Near East. The program is well-suited for students wishing to pursue a double major.
Why study ancient Mediterranean civilizations at UNH?
At UNH, you’ll have the opportunity to pursue your own interests and will be encouraged to study course offerings outside the classics department in areas such as archaeology, ancient philosophy, linguistics and English literature. We are part of the consortium of universities that supports the Intercollegiate Center for the Classical Studies in Rome, and our department also manages a popular January-term course in the ancient city, as well as programs in Greece and Budapest.
