Course Work & Requirements

Students will select courses that develop areas of interest that suit their specific needs. Apart from courses in the ancient languages and histories, students will take the graduate colloquium on historical methodologies in the Department of History (typically in semester three), and, in the Department of Classics, the proseminar on methodologies and ancillary disciplines (typically semester one). Students in the program are expected to demonstrate, through successful completion of an appropriate course or a written exam, competence in (a) one ancillary field (normally one of the following: epigraphy, archeology, numismatics, papyrology, or art history) and (b) two literature/author Classics courses (including one poetry or literature survey course).
