AMNE Course Equivalencies

In 2022/23, all courses previously coded CLST, CNRS, NEST or RELG are switching to a unified AMNE code.

In line with the new department name and identity, we have moved all active course codes in Classical Studies (CLST); Classical, Near Eastern and Religious Studies (CNRS); Near Eastern Studies (NEST); and Religious Studies (RELG) to a single course code: Ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern Studies (AMNE). We have also taken this opportunity to re-number courses into more logical groupings.

Some courses still appear in the UBC Calendar under the old codes. These are courses that our department no longer offers and we are in the process of relocating them to other departments or deleting them.

The table below shows all of our undergraduate courses (100, 200, 300 and 400 level) under their old code and number and their new AMNE code and number.
