Honors Ancient and Modern Classics Program of Study

fortezzaThis is a structured first-year program in which students take small Honors sections of general education classes as well as Socratic-style seminars called Honors Colloquia. The books used in all Ancient and Modern Classics courses are not the standard textbooks. Rather, AMC classes are taught using primary texts - books which are essential to our global civilization, and which have successfully withstood the test of time.

AMC Students complete the program as follows:

Fall Semester:

  • HON 1100: An Introduction to Honors Education
  • POLS 1101: American Government
  • HIST 2112: Survey of U.S. History II
  • HON 3000: Honors Colloquium

Spring Semester:

  • HIST 1111: Survey of World History I
  • ENGL 1102: English Composition II
  • HON 3000: Honors Colloquium

Summer Semester:
*Summer courses completed in Montepulciano, Italy

  • ART 1107: Art in Society
  • ENGL 2110: World Literature

Important Note: AMC students must complete at least two of the aforementioned classes per semester to participate in the cohort. While credit from AP and/or Dual-Enrollment courses will be acknowledged, it is critical to the cohort model that students complete at least two AMC courses together each semester.
