Boston University is a leading center for the study of archaeology and the only university in the United States with a separate, fully constituted, Department of Archaeology. We offer students a splendid opportunity to work closely with faculty in field study, in the laboratory, and in the classroom, developing professional expertise at the graduate level. The Department offers a PhD program in Archaeology, and three separate MA programs in Archaeology, Archaeological Heritage Management, and Geoarchaeology. While Boston University is an enormous institution with vast resources, the Department of Archaeology is a compact entity in which graduate students, faculty, and undergraduate majors interact with each other, formally and informally, on a daily basis.

The British School at Athens is an educational charity founded in 1886. It now forms part of the British Academy's network of Sponsored Institutes and Societies (BASIS) which sustains and supports British research overseas. The School exists to promote research of international excellence in all disciplines pertaining to Greek lands, from fine art to archaeometry and in all periods to modern times.
The BSR is a centre for research on the archaeology, history, and culture of Italy, and for contemporary art and architecture. It serves the needs of scholars and fine artists from the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. The BSR is one of the research institutes sponsored by the British Academy, and is one of a large group of international academies in Rome.
Graduate study of the archaeology and art of the ancient Mediterranean, Egypt, and western Asia is in a period of rapid innovation and expansion at Brown University. The Joukowsky Institute’s Ph.D. program in Archaeology and the Ancient World combines a flexible interdisciplinary atmosphere with a curricular structure that prepares students for professional careers in teaching, museum studies, or other relevant occupations. Students receive a broad overview of the archaeology and art of this complex region, allowing them to develop particular research interests revolving around one or more of its ancient cultures.
The undergraduate concentration in Archaeology and the Ancient World provides students with the opportunity to explore the multi-faceted discipline of archaeology while examining the critical early civilizations of the so-called “Old World” — that is, the complex societies of the Mediterranean (not least Greece and Rome), Egypt, and the ancient Near East. The concentration, with its three tracks and its encouragement of fieldwork and independent research, is designed to allow students flexibility in structuring their own path through this remarkably diverse, and highly engaging, field of study.
Bryn Mawr Classical Review publishes timely reviews of current scholarly work in the field of classical studies.
The Department of Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology is a fully supported graduate program at Bryn Mawr and part of the The Graduate Group in Archaeology, Classics and History of Art. Each of these departments has a distinguished tradition and strong national standing, and interdisciplinary study is encouraged by the faculty, promoting a strong sense of community and collegiality among the graduate students. The graduate curriculum, which stresses both breadth and depth of study, has prepared students for successful careers in a variety of fields, including teaching, research, publishing, and work in museums and foundations.
