Sophomore Inquiry: Classic Greek Civilization

(UNST 218)

This course will investigate the history, art, archaeology, culture, and philosophies of Greece in the Classical period (600-100 B.C.). We examine Greek culture in terms of its influence on modern American culture, and also focus on the differences between the two societies as a means of getting a more objective look at ourselves. Greek approaches to modern issues such as diversity, democracy, education, and poverty are explored and their lessons for today's society considered.
