hi all,

I've just received 5 years funding to study ancient history at the UCLA history department. While I am absolutely thrilled, I am quite curious about how UCLA history stands out among other programs. I am an international and does not really know about perceptions inside the U.S. regarding different history programs with ancient history emphasis. If somebody could share their insights I would be extremely grateful.

Hey,

I just saw that you hadn't got a response yet, and thought I'd throw out my opinion: UCLA History and Classics are close to the top; maybe not as high up as some ivys and or stanford (someone else correct me if I'm wrong) but still highly ranked and very well regarded. Hope that helps somewhat. I'm guessing some others are better qualified than I to assess UCLA for you but I thought I'd start it off anyway. Congrats!

UCLA has a great history department. I received my undergraduate degree there emphasizing in Ancient History and found that the faculty and fellow students were top-notch. Mellor and Phillips were both excellent professors and offered excellent advice to me when I was looking at graduate schools. Plus, you have access to the classics department and their faculty, which are also very distinguished. Congratulations on being admitted to such a fine program!
