The Summer Program in Archaeology was conceived in 1991 to give graduate students in all areas of Classical studies an overview of current developments in archaeological method and theory, focusing on ancient Italy and the ancient Mediterranean world. The seven-week course teaches selected participants the objectives and methods of archaeology through instruction and hands-on experience in active archaeological research. The program is divided into two parts: three weeks in residence at the American Academy for lectures and the opportunity to study the monuments and sources offered by Rome itself, and four weeks on-site at an archaeological excavation.
Students are encouraged to obtain support from their university or department. Additional financial assistance from the Academy is available to qualified participants in the program. If such assistance is requested, please submit copies of any financial award letters for the most recent academic year.
Application deadline is commonly in January-February. Visit funder website for more information.
