Courses

Students in the Department of Classical and Near Eastern Studies may select from a variety of courses in areas such as mythology, the Bible, human sexuality, archaeology, poetry, and prose. Most of our classes are discussion-based and small in size, allowing students and faculty to work closely together and get to know each other in a supportive and friendly environment. 

Course descriptions in our ClassInfo database provide more in-depth information about courses, expectations, and workload to give you a realistic understanding about what you will experience in each course. Schedule Builder is a tool for students to explore and build their course schedule.
