The Ancient History program is currently paused and not accepting applications as it undergoes restructuring. Applicants interested in studying Ancient History with a strong language focus in Ancient Greek and Latin are encouraged to apply to Classics, which houses several distinguished ancient historians. The requirements for that program can be found on the Classics PhD program page.
