    Explore the highly contentious and volatile nature of ancient Greek politics. Topics discussed include: civil war, foreign war, amnesty, revolutionary ideology, political amorality, imperialism, and the origins of democracy. Through an analysis of several case studies, students will understand why the Greeks often encountered great difficulties in their attempts to limit domestic conflict and promote large-scale cooperation. This is a central question for students of ancient Greek politics. But ? as you will see, grappling with it also will provide new and interesting insights into domestic and international politics in the modern world.

      Course Description
    The three credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps students with common learning outcomes focused on fundamental expectations for critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and oral communication, and learning at a university, all within topic focused subject matter. The Seminars provide students with an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 199 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.
