Give to IPAMAA

The Interdepartmental Program in Ancient Mediterranean Art and Archaeology (IPAMAA) at the University of Michigan is one of the top three graduate programs in ancient Mediterranean archaeology in the United States. First established nearly 50 years ago, IPAMAA derives special strength from an interdisciplinary and inclusive approach to the study of Mediterranean antiquity. The program is jointly sponsored by the Departments of Classical Studies and History of Art and is closely associated with the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology. In addition to access to the rich resources of the Kelsey Museum, IPAMAA students benefit from the opportunity to participate in UM-faculty directed archaeological field projects in Italy, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, and Sudan.
