THE DEPARTMENT is widely known for offering students an academically rigorous program in the primary Classical languages, as well as extensive experience in the teaching of the languages and cultures of Greece and Rome. Our faculty are wide-ranging in their areas of expertise, with particular strengths in the fields of Greek and Roman drama, women and gender studies, late antiquity and the reception of the Classical world. We provide encouragement, guidance and material support for students to pursue original research, attend conferences, deliver papers and prepare their work for publication. Currently, all graduate students in residence are supported financially with tuition waivers and either fellowships or teaching assistantships.
