Creation of a new interdisciplinary minor, Ancient Practices.

The proposers, an interdisciplinary team of humanists and STEM faculty, will create a new interdisciplinary minor called Ancient Practices designed to attract and engage STEM and other non-humanities undergraduates. This unique degree opportunity is built around the concept of integrating both humanities and STEM content into studies of the ancient world. The combination of these disciplines allows content dealing with classical and other ancient civilizations to be presented in the context of the core interests of other-than-humanities majors. This has been found to be an effective strategy for attracting these students into classes dealing with content that has been at foundation of studies of the humanities for centuries. This allows facility to engage students that might not otherwise be drawn to these classes and to instill in them the skills and habits of mind associated with humanistic studies.
