Our Master's program, housed within the Department of Classical Studies, provides a well rounded classical education with a variety of possible specialties, such as Greek and Latin language and literature, ancient art and archaeology, history, mythology and religion, philosophy, and culture. In addition, fieldwork opportunities in Italy, Greece, and Israel  as well as access to our Classical Artifact Research Collection, help enhance the skill sets and general knowledge of our students as they pursue the Master's degree. Our proximity to Boston gives students access to excellent area museums, universities, and libraries to expand their research. Students who complete the program are in a solid position to continue their education in a topnotch PhD program, or use their Master's degree to enter the workforce.

Teachers from K-12 in all subjects who pursue a Master's in Ancient Greek and Roman Studies have gained better standing in their schools and greatly improved their teaching of art, social studies, English, history, Latin, and much more.

The master's degree can be used as a stepping stone to a PhD program in classical studies, ancient history, comparative literature, ancient philosophy or a variety of other fields, including law or library school. Focusing on languages and literatures, art and archaeology, and culture, the department's coursework provides students with ample preparation for further graduate work.
