The study of Ancient Greek and Roman Philosophy is inherently interdisciplinary. Scholars must be able to situate philosophical texts in their broader cultural context. They must also be alive to the way a given text engages with and contributes to its philosophical tradition. Finally, they must be able to communicate effectively with scholars trained in either Classics or Philosophy.
Philosophy PhD students in the Joint Program in Ancient Greek and Roman Philosophy will be required to take certain courses in Classics and to participate in both certain seminars and in the Ancient Greek and Roman Philosophy workshop. Numerous faculty in both Philosophy and Classics teach courses that will satisfy requirements in the Joint Program.
