Why Classical and Mediterranean Studies? To study the classical world and its Mediterranean context is to explore the culture and history of a region at the crossroads of civilization since antiquity. Here, you will analyze the thought, language, art, systems, and landscapes of the Greeks and Romans; the roots of world religions, science, law, economy, and philosophy; the interconnections between Europe, Africa, and Asia across space and time; and the dynamic legacy of this past from the Middle Ages until today.
