Graduate students at Notre Dame access the expertise of Classics faculty through the new Master of Arts in Greek and Roman Studies, the Master of Arts in Early Christian Studies and the Ph.D. in Literature programs.
The Department of Classics at Notre Dame offers a funded, 2-year M.A. program in Classics, covering the language, literature, history and culture of the Greco-Roman world. The chief purpose of the program is to prepare students for doctoral study in these or other related areas.
The Department of Classics and the Department of Theology jointly offer the M.A. in Early Christian Studies. The program develops students’ abilities in at least two ancient Christian languages and literatures (Latin and/or Greek and/or Syriac) and imparts a broad background of knowledge and method in the intellectual, historical, and social contexts of early Christianity.
