Research Opportunities at Home and Abroad
Designed to combine class experience and scholarship with experiential learning, the Master's Program in Ancient Greek and Roman Studies offers students many firsthand opportunities to understand aesthetic creativity within the ancient world, investigate the problems of historical and archaeological preservation, gain insight into archival documentation of antiquity, learn digital technologies, and gain expertise in visual media related to the ancient world (including slides, digital databases, and Internet resources).
Research opportunities include summer archaeological fieldwork, research, and/or study with the following programs:
- Bay of Naples: Virgilian Society Cumae Program
- Rome: Collaborations with the Royal Netherlands Institute
- Israel: Tel Kabri
- Greece: Brandeis at Petras; Pyrgiotissa Cultural Heritage Project (ARCHEM) in Crete
Significant funding for summer travel, tuition, or expenses related to fieldwork and research are available through the generosity of our donors.
- Access to Brandeis' Classical Studies Artifact Research Collection
- 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
