About this course

Civilization studies provide an in-depth examination of the development and accomplishments of one of the world's great civilizations through direct encounters with significant and exemplary documents and monuments. These sequences complement the literary and philosophical study of texts central to the humanities sequences, as well as the study of synchronous social theories that shape basic questions in the social science sequences.

Course Modules

Here is a summary of the requirements for this programme:

Because civilization studies sequences offer an integrated, coherent approach to the study of a civilization, students cannot change sequences.
