The graduate departments of Classical Studies, History of Art, and Near
and Middle Eastern Civilizations at the University of Toronto offer a rich
interdisciplinary program in Ancient Studies at the M.A. and Ph.D. levels.
The faculty in the three departments cover a broad spectrum of
Ancient Mediterranean and Mesopotamian cultures. Classical Studies
and the History of Art together are concerned with the cultures of
the Bronze Age Aegean and the Græco-Roman world. Classics, with
fifteen graduate faculty, offers a full range of courses in Greek
and Roman history, language, and literature. The History of Art
Department, with three graduate faculty in the Ancient field, includes
the art and archaeology of the Aegean Bronze Age through the Greek and
Roman periods. Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations, with over fourteen
graduate faculty, covers the art, archaeology, languages, and literatures
of Egypt, Syria-Palestine and Western Asia.
Each department contributes courses and provides facilities and
supervision for graduate research. Students register in one of
the participating departments: Classics, Fine Art History, or Near and
Middle Eastern Civilizations.
