Featured Course: Ancient Greeks

Posted on


The rise and fall of ancient Greece has provided the bases of many things we take for granted in the modern word. For example, the first historians and mathematicians developed their crafts in reaction to the the shift to empirical thinking and reasoning. Additionally, the democratic political and judicial system was used to organize society, while poetry, theater, and other artistic elements were created to express it.
By diving into the Aegean Bronze Age in ANCS 201: The Ancient Greeks, students will learn about the nature of politics, the Persian and Peloponnesian wars, and Alexander the Great, in addition to Greek mythology and literature. This hybrid course fulfills the Arts and Humanities and Culture GEP.
