The Field of Classics
Every discipline taught and administered in the Cornell Graduate School is organized into a Graduate Field, coordinated and administered by a Director of Graduate Studies (DGS). The Graduate Field of Classics includes not only the faculty in the Department of Classics, but also professors from other departments whose research and teaching involve them substantially in teaching and research relevant to the Classics.
The departments currently represented in the Field are: Asian Studies, Classics, Comparative Literature, English, History, History of Art and Archaeology, Landscape Architecture, Linguistics, Near Eastern Studies and Philosophy. (Several members of the Field of Classics are also members of Interdisciplinary and Special Programs, such as Archaeology, Medieval Studies, and Religious Studies.) This wide representation means that instruction is available over an unusually wide range of subject matters.
