MALAS Suggested Classes, Summer 2018

It's always hard to find Summer graduate level classes at SDSU (while there is a sea of undergraduate online offerings, there are few seminars that actually meet face-to-face on campus in real time)--but we have done some research and found a few that are all pre-approved by MALAS Graduate Advisor and Director, William Nericcio, to be acceptable for your MALAS Program of Study. 

In other words, they count toward graduation with the MA!

Do note that some of these classes may have prerequisites. In most cases, these prereqs only count for undergraduates, but you never know! SDSU's registrar computer is sometimes quite strict and other times utterly indifferent to prereqs!  More below the three images...

Your other option is to search for graduate level course offerings at UCSD--remember, you can transfer up to 9 units of graduate coursework from accredited universities toward your MALAS program of study!

Fall 2018 Course Descriptions! MALAS 600C | Modern Technology and the Ancient World with new Classics & Humanities Post-Doc Danielle Smotherman Bennett

MALAS 600C/ HUM 580 
Modern Technology and the Ancient World

In the contemporary world, digital re-creations of sites and objects from the ancient world often appear in movies and TV, such as Ben-Hur and Game of Thrones, and in video games, such as Assassin's Creed Origins. Modern technology also provides tantalizing prospects for a deeper engagement with the material culture in ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome. In this course, we will explore the emerging scholarship concerning digital humanities for the study of the ancient world. Geography and mapping, digital dissemination of texts, and visual reconstructions of sites and objects, including 3-D modeling will come to the fore as we learn about the ancient Mediterranean. We’ll be critical consumers of the digital tools for the study the ancient world.
