About Brown University, Providence, RI

Brown University's Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World promotes the investigation, understanding, and enjoyment of the archaeology and art of the ancient Mediterranean, Egypt, and the Near East. We work in close collaboration with our colleagues in Brown University's Department of Anthropology whose research is focused on the study of the material remains of the ancient, historic, and modern Americas. The goal of the Joukowsky Institute is to foster a diverse and interdisciplinary community of all individuals interested in the ancient world, and with archaeologists of all parts of the globe, through active fieldwork and research projects, graduate and undergraduate courses and degree programs, public events, and educational outreach initiatives. The Department of the History of Art and Architecture at Brown University grants undergraduate degrees in the History of Art and Architecture, as well as in Architectural Studies. Graduate study in this department is geared toward earning a PhD in the History of Art and Architecture, and many areas of visual culture from the ancient world through the present. Work in the department of the History of Art and Architecture at Brown is conceived as an interdisciplinary undertaking, in which students are encouraged to become familiar with the variety of methodologies and practices that have historically been, and continue to be productive in our fields. We also maintain a longstanding commitment to museum studies and the study of objects through a close working relationship with the Museum of the Rhode Island School of Design. Interested students in this department have the opportunity to hold internships and (in the case of graduate students) proctorships at the museum.
