The Program offers a Graduate Certificate in Greek and Roman history for students already enrolled in graduate degree programs at the University of Michigan. The Graduate Handbook describes the Program in more detail.
This Certificate provides students with an introduction to the current historical methodologies and issues of ancient history and an opportunity to enrich their analytical skills in research courses on topics from ancient history. Graduate students in fields related to Greek and Roman history might consider earning the Certificate.
For students in the Classical Studies department who are primarily interested in literary studies, papyrology, or ancient philosophy, students in the History department who are primarily interested in medieval or Byzantine history, students in the Near Eastern Studies department who are working on early Christianity, Judaism, or early Islamic studies, and students in the Program in Classical Art and Archaeology, the Certificate is an attractive additional credential that will enhance their research and their professional futures.
