Description: Department of Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies
CAMS investigates the whole scope of the ancient Mediterranean world and trains students to interpret the linguistic and archaeological evidence of the greatest ancient cultures. We offer instruction in ancient languages including Sumerian, Egyptian, Hittite, Akkadian, Hebrew, Greek and Latin. We read the literatures of these civilizations in the original languages as well as in translation and illuminate the transmission of these texts from antiquity through the Middle Ages to the present. Our department also trains students in the methods of archaeology and archaeological interpretation with the goal of reconstructing the social practices and historical development of different peoples in the ancient Mediterranean.
