The Department offers programs of study leading to the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Classical archaeology. The program in Classical archaeology requires: a reading list examination in either Greek or Latin; demonstration of proficiency, by exam or through course work, in Greek and Roman history; examination on a topic in Bronze Age or Greek archaeology; examination on a topic in Etruscan or Roman archaeology; a special field or topic examination; an examination in an interdisciplinary topic. Doctoral students must complete and successfully defend a dissertation that makes an original contribution to scholarship.
The graduate program in classical archaeology at UNC provides students with broad training in classical archaeology, including advanced coursework in a variety of interpretive methods and approaches to material culture in the prehistoric and classical Mediterranean. The program offers M.A. and Ph.D. degrees, and encourages students to work beyond departmental boundaries by taking courses in departments of Art, Anthropology, Linguistics, History, and Religious Studies.
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.
The Department of Classics is deeply committed to undergraduate education, and offers courses and majors that present a wide variety of perspectives on and approaches to the ancient world. While many of the courses focus on the languages and literatures of Greece and Rome, others are concerned primarily with the material culture of the ancient world, its art, architecture and archaeology. The department also offers many courses that introduce students to classical civilization and literature in English translation.

Founded in 1939, the Research Laboratories of Archaeology (RLA) was the first center for the study of North Carolina archaeology. Serving the interests of students, scholars, and the general public, it is currently one of the leading institutes for archaeological teaching and research in the South. Located within the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's College of Arts and Sciences, it provides support for faculty and students working not only in North Carolina, but also throughout the Americas and overseas.

The Archaeological Exploration of Sardis, sponsored by the Harvard Art Museums and Cornell University, has been excavating at Sardis since 1958. The site has yielded artifacts from the Lydian, Persian, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, and other cultures. During the past 50 years more than 13,000 objects have been inventoried and many thousands more have been saved for future study.
