The Sanctuary of Poseidon on the Isthmus of Corinth became the major extramural shrine of the Corinthians, their most important religious foundation outside the city. It was one of four sanctuaries where Greeks from all parts of the Mediterranean came to compete in pan-Hellenic games. Oscar Broneer discovered the temple of Poseidon in 1952 and until 1967 conducted systematic excavations of the central plateau that contained the temple, altar, surrounding buildings, and a Roman hero shrine. He also cleared the theater, two caves used for dining, and two stadia for the Isthmian Games. In 1976, Elizabeth Gebhard succeeded Broneer as director of the University of Chicago Excavations at Isthmia. Efforts have been directed towards the final publication and conservation of objects recovered in Broneer’s excavations. In 1967, Paul A. Clement of University of California at Los Angeles undertook excavations in the Roman Bath and in the late antique fortress called the Hexamilion. After his death, he was succeeded in 1987 by Timothy Gregory of Ohio State University.
Excavations at Tilmen Hoyuk took place between 1959 and 2005. 
In 1988, after a hiatus of 50 years, the excavations at Troy were once again resumed under the direction of Dr. Manfred Korfmann from the University of Tübingen, with the cooperation of Dr. Brian Rose from the Department of Classics at the University of Cincinnati. Every summer since then a large international group, composed of archaeologists as well as representatives of many other academic disciplines, has conducted excavations.
The UCLA Interdepartmental Archaeology Graduate Program (AP) integrates archaeological faculty throughout the university for the training of graduate students who wish to pursue interdisciplinary research. Since the inception of the program, we have awarded over 100 M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Archaeology. Students form committees by integrating faculty from multiple departments, providing a unique opportunity to combine humanities, social sciences and physical sciences for the understanding of the ancient past.
Our archaeology major focuses on the discipline of archaeology itself and on the ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean and adjacent areas in western and northern Europe. The interdisciplinary nature of the major provides an excellent liberal arts education, as well as the necessary preparation to attend graduate school or other professional schools. In addition, Evansville's archaeology major retains enough flexibility to allow you to pursue a double major in minor in other areas of study that interest you. Our archaeology students often complement their studies with course work in anthropology, history, classical studies, religion, or art history, as well as advanced classes in languages or sciences related to archaeology. The majority of archaeology majors spend at least one semester abroad studying at Harlaxton College - UE's British campus - or enrolling in programs such as College Year in Athens, American Institute for Foreign Study in Rome, American University in Cairo, and Aix-en-Provence in France. Students also have opportunity to participate in excavations, including our on-campus training dig Tin City, and hold internships in museums in the US and abroad.
The Center for Archaeology is an interdepartmental center that does not have its own individual course listings or degree program. The links here provide information about the undergraduate program in archaeology and the graduate programs in which students conduct archaeological research. We have different programs of study to suit a variety of interests; all options share the same introductory requirements, but allow you to develop your studies in a range of different direction. The central tracks in archaeology are the Interdisciplinary Major in Archaeology and the Major in Anthropological Archaeology.
IPCAA (the Interdepartmental Program in Classical Art and Archaeology) offers a course of doctoral study in the arts and material culture of the ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern worlds. Formally sponsored by the Departments of Classical Studies and of The History of Art, and located in the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology, IPCAA draws on a distinguished range of faculty in several disciplines and on the rich museum and library resources of the University of Michigan. With its self-consciously interdisciplinary character, IPCAA is today widely acknowledged as among the very top programs in the country for the professional training of graduate students in Classical Archaeology.
The Department of Art History and Archaeology offers both a Master of Arts degree and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in art history and classical archaeology.
