Classical and Near Eastern Religions and Cultures Courses

Students in the Department of Classical and Near Eastern Religions and Cultures may select from a variety of courses in areas such as mythology, the Bible, Mesopotamian literature, ancient Greek and Roman religion, ancient Judaism and Christianity, and ancient poetry and prose. Students can also take courses in topics and themes in ancient culture and religion, such as gender and sexuality, purity and pollution, death and dying, public spectacles, royal culture and ideology, and the reception of the Bible and Greek and Roman culture in later periods, including today. Most of our courses are discussion-based and small in size, allowing students to work closely together and with the professors in a supportive and friendly but intellectually vigorous environment.

Course descriptions 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 and includes course descriptions.
