The Mediterranean Archaeology Collaborative Specialization (MACS) Program
This new specialization brings together the skills and experiences of faculty from Classics, Art, Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations, Anthropology and Religion to forge a unique blend of expertise and guidance for those pursuing advanced study in Mediterranean Archaeology. Students will obtain a degree in one of the collaborating departments with additional coursework focused on interdisciplinary approaches to the archaeological record and participation in field projects. More information is available the MACS Website.
For the 2018 - 2019 semester, various talks and events will highlight research in Mediterranean Archaeology. You can find any changes to the schedule on the Calendar page.
