The Department of Classics graduates a record number of Ph.D.s!

At the Department of Classics’s ceremony for awards and new graduates on May 5th, a record number of doctoral students were recognized. In the 2016-17 academic year, 6 students will be “hooded” in that time-honored tradition that links modern academia with its Medieval roots. This is on top of the 3 who received their Ph.D. in May 2016. So all together we have minted 9 new Ph.D.s in the last calendar year! We also recognized the 12 students who are receiving their B.A.s and the 8 students who are receiving their M.A.s. Congratulations to them all of our new graduates!
