Have you ever wondered what you can do with your knowledge of ancient history, besides being a professor? Are you nervous to study ancient history because you think you will need to know every fact about the world, too many dates, names, and places?

Join us on June 7th for our Live Ask an Expert Q&A; where you can hear about fun and innovative ways to bring ancient history to life in the modern day, and start planning your own future within ancient studies!
