Brief Summary of ProposalThe program change streamlines offerings in an interdisciplinary package which strengthens enrollments and makes economical use of faculty time. It emphasizes the strengths of UA in contrast to a more traditional language-based program at KSU. As an interdisciplinary major the 100- and 200-level courses provided a foundation in the multiple methodologies and the breadth that involves courses from other departments. Depth is provided in the required 21 hours of 300-400 level courses in Archaeology, Classical Studies, History, and Philosophy. The college requirement for 47 credits in 300-level or above courses will encourage students to take additional courses from the nine upper division courses noted under electives. 7100:100 Art History I provides an introduction to the methodology of art history and covers ancient art. 3230:150 Cultural Anthropology provides the foundation for a cross-cultural perspective and provides a theoretical foundation for advanced archaeological courses. 3200:220 Introduction to the Ancient World surveys the cultural achievements of the ancient world and essential methodology. 3200:230 Sports and Society in Ancient Greece and Rome provides a first encounter with cross-cultural analysis. 3200:289 Mythology of Ancient Greece provides students with the fundamental "language" of ancient literature and thought. 3600:211 History of Ancient Philosophy provides essential background to the development of Greek philosophy before Aristotle.
