    Undergraduate Concentration

    The concentration offers the students a choice of two tracks: Assyriology or Egyptology

The Department

We explore the histories, languages, cultures and sciences of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia and their neighbors. These regions, sometimes known collectively as the Ancient Near East, have a long history stretching back to the formation of the first complex societies and the invention of writing. Faculty in the department teach undergraduate and graduate courses in Egyptology, Assyriology and the history of ancient science.
