Foundations for Ancient Greece - ANHS1600

Year - 2020

Art, literature, democracy, philosophy--you name it. We have much to thank the Greeks for! Or do we? This course brings you the big picture of ancient Greek history and develops your lateral thinking in truly interactive lectures and experiential tutorials. This will not be a history of events and individuals but a (more exciting) history of thematic processes--elite culture, democracy, diplomacy, religion etc.--over time.

1x2500wd take-home exercise (40%), 1x1500wd research exercise (30%), 1x500wd equiv creative exercise (20%), participation (10%)
