The Ancient World Minor

The Ancient World multidisciplinary minor focuses on the shared and overlapping periods in the development of cultures and civilizations around the Mediterranean basin, in the Near East, and across central Asia to the Pacific Ocean.

Abu Dhabi’s location at the center of this geographical expanse makes it an ideal site for exploring the intellectual and material riches of the ancient world. This minor encompasses a number of disciplines, including archaeology, art history, history, literature, and philosophy.
