Research Opportunities at Home and Abroad

Research opportunities include:
- Summer archaeological fieldwork, research, and/or study:
- Italy: Bay of Naples: Virgilian Society Cumae Program; Rome: Collaborations with the Royal Netherlands Institute

- Students frequently take advantage of our close proximity to Boston, with a wide variety of museum exhibitions and collections including those at the Museum of Fine Arts, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Harvard Museums, and the Museum of Science
