The Program in the Ancient World enables doctoral candidates with wide-ranging interests in the ancient world (ancient Mediterranean and Near East) to extend their studies beyond departmental lines and pursue work in the languages, history, art, archaeology, and the religions of antiquity. Four departments provide the majority of offerings relevant to students in the program: Art and Archaeology, Classics, History, and Religion; additional guidance and instruction are available from the Departments of Anthropology and Near Eastern Studies.
