  • Overview

    This course is designed for advanced students in Archaeology and Classics to explore a particular topic (time period, theme, theoretical approach, author etc.) in a discussion-based seminar setting. Students should expect to complete extensive readings of primary and secondary sources (100+ pages per week), and compile their research into a substantial written output (8000+ words over the course of the semester). Topics will be selected based on current trends in Archaeology and Classics, as well as student and faculty interest. The course may include one or more required field trips. Students may take this course twice, provided the topics are different.
