Graduate Program

Classical and Near Eastern Studies (CNES) offers three M.A. and Ph.D. degree tracks within a single CNES umbrella major: Greek, Latin, and Classics.

An M.A. in Religions in Antiquity is also offered.

CNES graduate students are strongly encouraged to adopt a broad interdisciplinary approach by taking courses and serving as teaching and research assistants across the entire range of the Department’s offerings.

The CNES program in Ancient and Medieval Art and Archaeology (M.A. or Ph.D.) is not accepting applications for the foreseeable future.

Students interested in ancient art and archaeology, especially of the late antique period, may wish to consider Minnesota's Art History program; Professor Matthew Canepa works in late antique imperial Roman and Persian studies and works with faculty in CNES.
