Study Abroad


Students sometimes have the opportunity to study archaeology while spending a semester away from Barnard/Columbia. In a few cases, our students have also participated in programs which satisfy the fieldwork requirements for the archaeology major.

Recommended Programs

The Hadrian's Villa Project, near Rome, Italy.
Program Director: Francesco de Angelis

Columbiaís Advanced Program of Ancient History and Art (APAHA) offers a four-week summer program that provides undergraduate and graduate students with the unique opportunity to excavate and learn together at Hadrianís Villa, a UNESCO World Heritage site near Rome and the most important of Roman imperial villas. Students will learn archaeological techniques at all levels and think critically about how excavation work allows for deeper insight into the social, political, economic, architectural and artistic history of classical antiquity.

The program is aimed at students interested in the history, art, and architecture of the classical world. Thanks to the broad scope and size of the project, beginning through advanced students of archaeology can be accommodated to work on various assignments appropriate to their individual backgrounds.
