Ancient Civilization Overview

The program in ancient civilization consists principally of courses in art history, classics, Jewish studies, and philosophy. This interdisciplinary program covers the entire spectrum of ancient Mediterranean culture including Greek, Hebrew, and Latin languages. By combining art history, Jewish studies, and philosophy with what has been traditionally identified as classics (Greek and Latin language and literature), the Clark program in ancient civilization presents established disciplines in a stimulating and original configuration.
