AMS 275 Introduction to Classical Studies


This course introduces students to the study of the ancient world and its documentary and non-literary domains. Within the former
domain, topics of study will include the nature of ancient written texts, scholia, lexica, grammars, commentaries, interpretive analyses,
bibliographies, manuscript traditions, and modern scholarly resources. With regard to the non-literary sources of information, students
will become familiar with the types of material artifacts used to study the cultures of ancient Greece and Rome and the theoretical
approaches to the study. Although students may take this course at any time, majors must take this course before they enroll in GRS 475,
which they will normally take in the fall semester of the senior year. Course offered in alternate years; scheduled for 2014-15.
