Took class awhile ago, don't remember much about content. Course was about culture from ancient times to the Byzantine era, so I was thinking history. Looked at art, literature, statues, etc. Any input is appreciated.

It would help to know the course and department names. Sounds like History or Behavioral & Social Sciences (BESS) (Anthropology?) to me.

Probably wouldn't matter much, but I might as well make my AMCAS perfect.
course name: Human Survey: Ancient through Byzantine culture
course description: An integrated course designed to increase the student's understanding and appreciation of the creative process in cultures through the study of representative artifacts in literature, music, philosophy, religion, social history, architecture and visual arts from prehistory into the Byzantine era.

For my CC's AA program, it's listed under the Humanities requirement. It is separate from english, history (which is listed under social science), but courses that fulfill the humanities requirement can be religion, philosophy, theater. My university classified it as a history/culture class though, along with with religion (though religion is obviously religion). If it comes down to it, I'll just put it under history.

I would have actually considered that a social science as understand culture in an anthropological/archeology. In the end it really wont matter

I guess it won't. I looked over the course classification and the AMCAS manual, but couldn't find anything. I was under the impression that if I were mistaken, it would be sent back to me. I guess social science it is then. Strangely enough they say economics counts as a social science too...

I'm sorry, what I meant to say where would you put economics as you were surprised it was social/behavioral. What do you consider it
TBH, I had no idea. I was just a bit surprised when I checked the AMCAS guide, but I would have considered it to be closer to government.
