Welcome to PIES!

 

PIES is the UCLA Interdepartmental Graduate Program in Indo-European Studies, leading to the degree of Ph.D.

 

At present, the program focuses on Indo-European linguistics, and on specialized language study in individual languages and language areas; nevertheless, the program also aims to provide an integrated understanding of Indo-European culture, based on comparative linguistics, archaeology, social structure, religion, mythology, and poetics.

 

The program sponsors a lively series of visiting lectures, culminating in an international conference held on campus each fall, and partly organized by students in the program. The program maintains its own reading room, with reference materials and journal subscriptions covering all areas of Indo-European studies.
