Research Support and Faculty Mentorship
The Classical Studies Program supports faculty and student research in a wide range of scholarly interests. Faculty contribute to scholarly publications and offer students opportunities to engage in faculty-mentored independent research.
Conference Travel Grants
The Classical Studies Program encourages students to present their research at professional conferences. Graduate students wishing to obtain support for travel to a professional meeting must apply to the Graduate Studies Office, which funds travel up to $1,000 ($1,200 for international travel).
Summer Research Fellowships
You will also have the opportunity to apply for Summer Research funding through the Graduate Studies Office to support travel and other expenses related to your research while in our program. Graduate Student Summer Research Fellowship awards are made on a competitive basis in the amount of $3,000 for work in June, July and August.
Villanova’s graduate school tuition is very competitive, and there are a number of ways to finance your MA in Classical Studies. All of the classes are held in the evenings, permitting you to work while in the program whether you are studying part-time or full-time.
The program offers graduate Tuition Scholarships. To be considered for these funding sources, you should apply for admission in the fall semester. Applicants for spring admission cannot be considered for these awards.
There are also assistantships offered by other Villanova departments and offices. If you apply for other University assistantships, you will still be considered for internal department funding.
