Ancient Mediterranean Studies Minor
Undergraduate students will be expected to complete at least 18 credit hours of AMS courses with a grade of C- or higher in at least three departments, including Art History, English, History, Philosophy, Political Science, or Religious Studies. Half of these must be courses at the 3000-4000 level. A course in another department may be permissible with review and approval by AMS faculty. See below for a list of approved courses.
While a language is not required for the minor, taking Latin is strongly recommended, especially for graduate students and any undergraduates who have plans to continue their studies in graduate school. Other relevant languages (Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic, etc.), acquired through other venues, are equally acceptable.
