Announcing The CJ Online Survey of Perceived Quality of PhD Education in 
Classical Studies

Available February 15 – April 15 2009 at

The Classical Journal invites professional academics and graduate students 
in the classics and closely related fields to participate in an online 
survey intended to assess the perceived quality of PhD education in 
classical studies in the United States and Canada, and thus to offer 
guidance to undergraduates interested in graduate study in the area. This 
is not an “objective” evaluation of library resources, publication 
records, placement results and the like of the sort carried out by the 
National Research Council. Instead, we are concerned with participants' 
subjective sense as to which programs do the best job of training PhD 
students in the field generally, as well as in the specific areas of Greek 
and Latin literature, Greek and Roman history, and Greek and Roman 
archaeology. Rankings will be limited in number and positive; participants 
will not be asked to "vote against" any program or to rank all programs in 
the field.

Results (including breakdowns by demographic and professional categories 
and by preference for different ranking criteria) will be announced via CJ 
Online, and will eventually be posted at classicaljournal.org.

Participation is restricted to individuals who either (a) hold a PhD in 
classical studies or a closely related field, AND have at some point held a 
teaching position in the United States or Canada; OR (b) are an MA or PhD 
student in an American or Canadian graduate program in classical studies or 
a closely related field. You may participate in the survey only once. In an 
effort to encourage as wide a participation in the survey as possible, we 
encourage you to forward this announcement to colleagues and students.
