kittie Posted August 29, 2010 Share Posted August 29, 2010 Hi there! I was just wondering if anyone knew of Classics Departments with a strong contigent of faculty who teach Roman History, especially military history. I'm not talking about a Classics department with a working relationship with a History department and their faculty. I mean a large enough Classics department with specialists in Roman History. I've noticed that there are quite a few programs who simply outsource all their Greco-Roman history classics to the History department, which shocks me because it is something that just didn't occur at my alma mater. I want a Phd in Classics not a Phd in History, and so I need Classics faculty who are capable of teaching undergraduate Roman history classes who are also involved in a Classics Phd program. Also, I read through the Classics forum and noticed there were a few people who were applying to U of Iowa last year. I'm going to look up that program because for some reason I just never considered it. Can someone tell me about the department and the faculty members there? What are they like and why are people applying there? Do they have a special incentive or is it all because of some research reason? I'd like to know!
