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.
Check out this article from the graduate school’s website about what some students have done this year through their studies at Notre Dame.
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.
The Ph.D. in Literature is an innovative interdisciplinary program which focuses on the study of literature from a transnational and intercultural perspective.
Combining the forces of a number of departments and programs—Classics (Arabic, Greek, Latin, Syriac), East Asian Studies, French and Francophone Studies, German, Iberian and Latin American Studies (Portuguese, Spanish), Irish Studies, Irish Language & Literature, Italian Studies, Philosophy, and Theology—the Ph.D. in Literature brings together outstanding faculty and resources to enable doctoral students to study literature both within traditional disciplines and across disciplinary and national boundaries.
