Classical and Near Eastern Studies (CNES) is an interdisciplinary department that brings together faculty and graduate students who might in other settings be dispersed among a wide range of programs. CNES is dedicated to rigorous philological and literary training, and to the conviction that the ancient Mediterranean world is best studied as a diverse but richly integrated cultural whole. The various MA and PhD tracks allow students to concentrate in the area and period that most appeal to them, but students are strongly encouraged to take courses across the entire range of the department's offerings and to develop a broad, multidisciplinary approach to research and teaching.

  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
