The study of ancient human civilizations is both one of the most challenging and most rewarding fields of scholarly endeavor. Successful research across such a depth of time demands an interdisciplinary approach that draws upon a variety of fields, including anthropology, archaeology, art, classics, English, history, philosophy, political science, religious studies, theatre, world languages, and others.

Students and scholars who are willing to undertake such study are rewarded with insights into the period of human society when crucial steps were made in constructing the foundations for the modern world. It was, after all, in the ancient world that the building blocks of contemporary religions, languages, social systems, and technologies were laid down.

The ancient civilizations minor is built around a shared core of 6 credit hours and the choice of three independent tracks that allow students to design a minor tailored to their own scholarly interests and needs.
