The study of the Mediterranean world examines the influential achievements and legacy of the Greeks and Romans alongside the emergence and spread of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam to the East. It also explores the premodern to modern development of southern Europe, North Africa, and western Asia, which have variously responded to the ancient and medieval past.
- Majors in Classical and Mediterranean Studies at Vanderbilt University are introduced to the distinctive geography and history of the region but choose their courses in one of three tracks. These tracks have shared content but offer different viewpoints and training. Majors who expect to apply for graduate study should work closely with an adviser to devise an appropriate curriculum.
- In teaching and research, our faculty promote the integrated study of past and present through both written and material sources—textual, artifactual, visual, spatial—and they embrace analytical techniques in the digital humanities. Students thus have the opportunity to learn several ancient and medieval languages of Europe and the Middle East and to pursue experiential learning overseas, from intensive modern language study to archaeological fieldwork to the investigation of evolving cultural and natural landscapes.
