Affiliated Programs and Certificate Programs
As an interdepartmental program (IDP), the Program in Indo-European Studies is closely affiliated with a wide variety of UCLA departments and programs, such as the departments of Classics, Linguistics, Near Eastern Languages and Cultures, Asian Languages and Cultures, and the Interdepartmental Archaeology Program. Some other UCLA academic units with connections to Indo-European Studies include the following:
The Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies is a research center uniting over one hundred faculty who offer courses on subjects from Late Antiquity through the Renaissance. The Center sponsors many lectures and colloquia throughout the year, and also supports some research assistantships and travel grants, for which Indo-European Studies graduate students are eligible to apply.
The Cotsen Institute of Archaeology is a research organization dedicated to the creation, dissemination, and conservation of archaeological knowledge and heritage. It is home to both the Interdepartmental Archaeology Program and the UCLA/Getty Program in Archaeological and Ethnographic Conservation. The Institute offers a lively program of talks and seminars throughout the year, offers summer fellowships for archaeological fieldwork, and helps to coordinate fieldwork opportunities.
Some UCLA departments and other academic units offer “Graduate Certificates”: by fulfilling the requirements of these certificate programs (generally involving course work in about six graduate-level offerings), students can document their having obtained approximately M.A.-level training in an academic area outside of their home department.
The Graduate Certificate in Indo-European Studies is offered by the Program in Indo-European Studies to graduate students in other departments and programs.
