C C 302 • Intro To Ancient Rome-Wb

32445 • Spring 2018

This introductory-level online course covers the cultural and political history of Ancient Rome, from the city’s origins in the Iron Age (c. 800 BCE) to the rise of Augustus and the rule of emperors in the 1st century CE/AD. Students will have the opportunity to learn about Rome’s evolution from a small, hilltop settlement to the head of a world empire. By the end of the course, students will be familiar with the most important buildings, artistic works, events and historical figures of Ancient Rome.


The course can be completed entirely online, though students must attend three exams either on campus or at an approved testing facility. The course is made up of textbook readings, primary source readings, and ten highly interactive, multimedia content modules. Students will be able to work through the modules at their own pace and on their own schedule, within around a 7- to 10-day period per module. Each module includes a practice quiz, so that students can evaluate their progress, identify misunderstandings, and develop strategies for improvement with the help of the course instructor, and concludes with a short, graded, multiple choice quiz. Students will also complete a module and write an analytical essay about a movie based on ancient Roman culture.
