The Comparative Ancient Civilizations major combines the breadth of an interdisciplinary major with the focus of more traditional majors like History or Classical Civilization. By undertaking a comparison of several major cultures of the past, which have a continued importance in the construction of our present world, the program affords a truly liberal education. Students have a unique opportunity to employ the methods of humanities and social sciences in their major study.
