Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Arts and Sciences


The Interdisciplinary Classical Civilizations (ICC) Minor provides students with a broad-based area of study encompassing the literature, history, linguistics, art and archaeology, philosophy, and religion of Greece, Rome, and the Near East from pre-history to late antiquity.  For centuries, the study of these vibrant societies has been recognized as essential to a proper understanding of our own culture and, recently, there has been a renewed recognition of the skills such study develops.  Students pursuing the ICC Minor are offered a unique interdisciplinary approach that allows a customized exploration of the ancient world.  Faculty from multiple departments offer a range of courses in diverse aspects of the ancient world.  Students can acquire and develop specific applied skills through their studies, such as critical thinking, reading, and writing; research; interpersonal communication; intercultural and global fluency; and more.
