The graduate program in Classical Archaeology combines rigorous language training with interdisciplinary study of material culture, ancient history, and archaeological method and theory. In addition to developing broad competence in classical languages and other areas of classical studies, students in the program work with the department's innovative archaeological faculty in the classroom and in the field, and often with faculty in other departments, including Anthropology and Art History. The program prepares students to succeed both as generalists in Classics and as active archaeologists. Most procedures and requirements are therefore the same as for the program in classical languages; but the archaeology program also has some special requirements. A faculty member serving as Archaeology Advisor helps each student develop an individualized plan of coursework to prepare for these requirements efficiently. The core teaching faculty in classical archaeology includes Joseph Carter, Jennifer Gates-Foster, Adam Rabinowitz, and Rabun Taylor, along with John Clarke, Penelope Davies, Nassos Papalexandrou, and Glenn Peers in Art History.
