UC Berkeley offers a combined MA/PhD program in Classical Archaeology. Most students are admitted after the BA and earn an MA on the way to the PhD, but a few students with an MA from elsewhere are admitted directly to the PhD program. We do not consider applications for MA work only. Study leading through the M.A. to the Ph.D. in Classical Archaeology is intended to ensure that students are fully competent in Greek and Latin and have a good understanding of historical method, as well as a thorough training, including experience in fieldwork, in Greek and Roman archaeology. Degree recipients should be qualified either for a major museum post, or for university teaching up to senior undergraduate level in the ancient languages and in ancient history, and at all levels including graduate instruction in large areas of ancient archaeology and art history.
