Ancient History & Mediterranean Archaeology
AHMA offers a program for students with interdisciplinary interests in the Classical, Late Antique and Ancient Near Eastern worlds. The program leads to M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in areas that combine work in history, art, archaeology, epigraphy, papyrology and related disciplines of ancient studies.

Art Practice
The department's focus is on the teaching of Fine Arts in a studio setting under the guidance and mentorship of professional artists, and offers a wide range of approaches in painting, printmaking, sculpture/ installation (wood, metal, ceramics, mixed media), video art, performance art and interactive digital art.

The department offers undergraduate and graduate training in ancient Greek and Latin language and literature, archaeology, history, epigraphy, numismatics, palaeography, philosophy, cultural studies, gender studies, and the classical tradition. 

History of Art 
The graduate program offers a two-stage integrated master's and doctoral program (M.A./Ph.D.) in preparation for college teaching, writing, and specialized curatorial careers. Students work closely with faculty in courses, seminars, and independent research projects to develop independent thought as well as a thorough knowledge of the field and its critical methods. 

Visual Resources Collection 
The History of Art Visual Resources Collection is a departmental facility located in the Main Library that circulates its 385,000 35 mm slides of art and architecture primarily to History of Art and Classics faculty and their GSIs for use in History of Art and Classics courses. The History of Art VRC also makes 35 mm slides to support the instructional needs of the History of Art Department, adding approximately 8,000 images per year to the collection.
