Thank you for supporting our graduate program

The faculty, staff, and students of the Department of Ancient Mediterranean Studies are deeply grateful for the many emails and letters written since January 25 in support of our newly formed department.  Spirited, smart, and determined, these calls for the preservation of our graduate program have poured in from alumni near and far; from concerned faculty all over the world; and from many regional, national, and international organizations and research centers.  All of us here in AMS are heartened by your advocacy, and we feel ourselves the richer for your memories, your appreciation, and the strength of your belief in the enduring value of what we do. The department is working closely with Pat Okker, Dean of the College of Arts and Science, on ways to improve our graduate program in the expectation that the long tradition of excellence in classics and classical archaeology at MU will continue for generations to come.
