As part of their graduate training students have many opportunities to engage with the discipline beyond their classroom experience. These include attendance at, participation in, and also the organization of professional conferences; publication in graduate journals in Classics; collaboration in faculty research; study-abroad opportunities at foreign institutions; and involvement in archaeological fieldwork.
"My time as a PhD student in the Department of Classics saw me teaching a variety of courses at UB, serving as a doctoral fellow at the Université de Lausanne, Switzerland, and directing my own excavations in Portugal. The ample opportunities for teaching offered to me as a graduate student have been quite helpful in my current job." – Joey Williams, PhD '14
