The Department of Classics at Notre Dame offers a funded, 2-year M.A. in Classics program, covering the language, literature, history, archaeology, and culture of the Greco-Roman world, as well as its reception. The chief purpose of the M.A. in Classics is to prepare students for doctoral study in these or other related areas. The program also provides a depth and breadth of exposure to classical antiquity worthwhile in its own right. Over a dozen regular and concurrent faculty of the Department of Classics offer specialties in a wide range of fields covering Greek and Latin literature, Greek and Roman culture and history, linguistics, archaeology, and material culture from Archaic Greece through Late Antiquity, as well as the reception of antiquity in various forms.
