The basis of humanistic learning, attitudes and values in the Western world is in the civilizations of the ancient Mediterranean world. Ancient studies students expand the boundaries of their world and develop a sense of the importance of the past as they examine the origins of Western civilization. Students majoring in ancient studies take a balanced group of courses that investigate the ancient world through the disciplines of language, literature, history and archaeology. Ancient studies students unearth the stuff of history itself. Many participate in archaeological excavations and classes in such places as Greece, Italy and the Near East, for which there are scholarships.
