Bryn Mawr Graduate Students May be Eligible for Summer Study-Abroad Fellowships

Fellowships and scholarships are available to those planning to study Greek, Latin, and Classical Studies. Fellowships are normally for one year, but are sometimes extended depending upon the recipient's progress. Students studying advanced subjects may be eligible for Travel Fellowships or Teaching Assistantships. Tuition grants, scholarships, and other forms of financial aid can also be secured through Bryn Mawr College. The department has a commitment to supporting students in their studies of literary and historical texts in the cultural context of the works. The Department offers two fellowships each year toward summer study abroad in Italy or Greece. Students are encouraged to study abroad at the American Academy in Rome, Italy, or the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, Greece. These fellowships are usually awarded to students who will finish their master's degrees in the academic year before their summer study abroad.

Each week, a classics Colloquium is held by the department. The Colloquium provides students opportunities for participation in a less-formal atmosphere and a chance to hear prominent speakers discuss literary, archeological, and historical topics. The classics Colloquium gives graduate students a chance to talk with faculty in a relaxed setting, while hearing scholars from other institutions present papers on an array of subjects. Bryn Mawr faculty and senior graduate students also contribute to the meetings.

Classicists around the Globe Read the "Bryn Mawr Classical Review" of Scholarly Works

Bryn Mawr College maintains a highly respected tradition of educating scholars in Greek, Latin, and studies of the classics. Fields of study within the department's Graduate Programs in Classical Languages include the choice of studying the languages of Greek or Latin individually or together. The programs also offer graduate students options in Greek and Latin studies. The graduate programs in the Department of Greek, Latin, and Classical Studies are: Greek Studies (Greek Archaeology and Greek); Latin Language and Roman Studies; Greek Language; and Classical Languages (Greek and Latin).

Each of the separate programs of the department has its own prerequisites and allied subjects. However, the graduate programs in classical languages and the programs in Greek and Latin studies offer both the M.A. and Ph.D. degree plans. Students in the programs attend seminars and small classes where they receive personalized attention from faculty. In addition to courses and seminars at Bryn Mawr, students can enroll in classes at the University of Pennsylvania and in some cases, Princeton University.

The college is known by classicists around the globe who read the "Bryn Mawr Classical Review," which reviews current scholarly work in the field of classical studies. The department also achieved the designation of publishing the second-oldest online scholarly journal in the area of humanities through its distribution of the Classical Review.

Exceptional Classics Collection is Available for Student Research in the Rhys Carpenter Library

The Department of Greek, Latin, and Classical Studies has a faculty dedicated to individualized instruction for graduate students, as well as to colloquium participation, interdepartmental collaboration, research interests, and other scholarly pursuits. Faculty members from the college's early founding up to the present have been instrumental in contributing to a respected international reputation in classical languages.

The department often invites associated faculty from neighboring institutions to present seminars in their specific area of specialization, which may not be found among the Bryn Mawr faculty members. A rich research resource for departmental faculty, students of the classics, and other graduate group students is the college's valuable classics collection, considered one of the best in the nation. The collection can be accessed in the expansive Rhys Carpenter Library. Classics' graduate students have wired study carrels reserved for them in this research facility. Additional resources are within student's reach in the college's Canaday Library.

This research facility has a special collection that contains more than 1,200 printed books that were published before 1500. These exceptional books are available for student interest or research. Bryn Mawr is one member of what is known as the Tri-College Community. The research facilities and collections of Haverford and Swarthmore Colleges are also open to student use. The three colleges operate a combined electronic catalog, so books ordered from other collections are available within hours.
