With a team of faculty drawn from across the humanities and social sciences, students examine pivotal texts, events, and artifacts of European civilization from antiquity forward. The course is enhanced by guest lectures from preeminent scholars and by excursions to museums and performances. This double-credit course meets for six hours a week and fulfills distribution requirements in both LA and HA.
