Course Description:

The Classical world of Greece and Rome ended almost 2,000 years ago and yet we still revere it today. How did humans during this period see the world and their role within it? In what ways did they think differently from their modern counterparts? By examining their art, architecture, philosophy, poetry, theatrical works, and more, we can gain a better understanding of this fascinating period in human history.
