Ours is a vibrant intellectual community of classicists with diverse specialties and wide-ranging interests; we are committed to the innovative and theoretically informed exploration of the ancient Mediterranean world. Graduate work here accordingly mixes rigorous training in the materials and skills of specific disciplines with openness to new approaches and dialogue across media, genres, time periods and specialties. We are actively seeking PhD students who will contribute to this distinctive intellectual atmosphere and who will thrive in its particular strengths and opportunities. Is Stanford right for you? Are you right for us?
