Outcome Assessment:
Students taking this course are expected to gain historical understanding of the major developments of ancient Greek history and an appreciation of the manifold ways in which ancient Greece has profoundly influenced our contemporary world.  The assessment for these learning goals is based on the quality of assigned work (map quizzes, written work, examinations).

Academic Integrity:
The Syracuse University Academic Integrity Policy holds students accountable for the integrity of the work they submit. Students should be familiar with the Policy and know that it is their responsibility to learn about the instructor's (and general) academic expectations with regard to proper citation of sources in written work. The policy also governs the integrity of work submitted in exams and assignments as well as the veracity of signatures on attendance sheets and other verifications of participation in class activities. Serious sanctions can result from academic dishonesty of any sort.
