PhD in Classics
UC Irvine's Department of Classics offers a program of study leading to the PhD in Classics. Since 1998, the Department has participated in the UC Tri-Campus Program which is an innovative program bringing together faculty members in Classics and related disciplines from the three southernmost University of California campuses; i.e., UC Irvine, UC Riverside, and UC San Diego). The Tri-Campus Program is hosted by the UC Irvine campus and features a rich curriculum and program of study that unites the main currents of modern literary, cultural, and social-scientific theory with the traditional skills and methodologies of Classical philology.
The aim of the Tri-Campus Program is to provide an educational environment for pursuing a graduate career in Classics that is closely integrated into the main currents of humanistic and social scientific scholarship. The Program's faculty recognizes that today and in the future teachers of the Classics must possess and develop expertise beyond the standard specialties of the traditional Classics Ph.D. degree.
To achieve these goals, the Program and curriculum are designed around five principles:
Classification: Doctoral/Research University—Extensive
Loans Offered: Tuition assistance is available through student loans
Locale: Midsize City
