Field of Study:Classics and Classical Lang., Lit., and Linguistics, Gen.
Medieval and Renaissance Studies
Description:Discover the roots of the modern world by examining the development of culture and thought from Graeco-Roman antiquity through the Middle Ages and into the Renaissance. Explore, understand and appreciate ancient languages and the literature, art, ideas, and historical movements that informed Western civilization.

You will examine the origin and evolution of western civilization between 700 B.C. and A.D. 1600. An understanding of civilization requires the integration of three dimensions: the historical (including archaeology and the history of society and politics); the intellectual (including philosophy, science and religion); and the cultural (including languages, arts, drama, literature and architecture). You will apply this understanding to a particular discipline and period of cultural tradition.
