About Our Program

The Graduate Center’s Program in Classics offers Ph.D. and M.A. degrees in Greek and Roman classics, with rigorous training in Latin and ancient Greek. Students will achieve mastery of the languages, literatures, and civilization of the Greco-Roman world, and conduct their own research in the field.
 
Course offerings cover a variety of subjects in Greek and Latin literature, ancient history, and philosophy ranging from masters level surveys and composition courses to research seminars at the Ph.D. level. Within the Ph.D. program, students may choose to specialize in Classical Philology or in Ancient History.

Courses are available through a consortium with Fordham and New York Universities. Students may register for courses offered in the field at any of the participating institutions and have access to all libraries at the three institutions. Students are also invited to attend lectures at the three universities as well as consortium sponsored events. Through the consortium, Graduate Center students have opportunities to exchange ideas with other graduate students and classics faculty from throughout the city.

Courses of related interest are also available through the Graduate Center's Ph.D. Programs in Philosophy, Comparative Literature and History, and the Certificate Programs in Medieval Studies and Renaissance Studies.
