CANES Minor Programs

Minor in Ancient History

This is the only systematic program in Ancient History at Creighton. The Minor entails four courses selected from among the basic upper-division Near Eastern, Greek, and Roman history sequences, followed by two electives taken from a prescribed palette of historically-oriented courses. This Minor is an excellent choice for Classical Languages majors wishing to go on to graduate study. NB: Some courses which can be taken to satisfy the Ancient History Minor are not given HIS credit by the History Department.

Minor in Classical and Near Eastern Studies

A comparatively unstructured minor, students can satisfy its requirements with 18 hours of any upper-division courses (300-, 400- or 500-level) under the CNE rubric. This Minor is good for students who have taken some CANES courses, like the field and want to take more courses, but haven't time for the Major, or to satisfy the breadth requirements of the other Minors. It is also an excellent complement to the Classical Languages Major for those wishing to add cultural studies to their study of language, or desiring to go on to graduate study in Classics. This Minor is not open to students pursuing the Classical and Near Eastern Civilizations Major.
