Primary Instructor:

This course provides an introduction to the world of the ancient Greeks. We will explore various aspects of ancient Greek civilization, including its major historical events, its political organization, social institutions and rules, religion, as well as intellectual achievements in philosophy, literature and the arts. Weekly readings will consist of ancient sources in translation (Homer, Aeschylus, Euripides, Aristophanes, Thucydides, Plato) and supplemental textbook reading. This course also fulfills the First-Year Writing Requirement, so a major goal is to help students develop college-level writing skills. In sections, we will spend a large part of our time discussing the process of writing and students will practice writing through a variety of writing exercises.

Course Requirements:

A variety of writing exercises as well as essays for a total of 25 pages of polished writing as required by the FYWR. Quizzes during the semester and a final exam.

Intended Audience:

Freshmen. No knowledge of classical literature or languages is required.

Class Format:

Two lectures and two sections per week.
