Yale’s museums, library, and faculty resources in Egyptology allow specialization in any period or aspect of Egyptian language, literature, and civilization, including art and archaeology. Students in this concentration are expected to acquire a sound grasp of Egyptian (Old, Middle, and Late), as well as of the history, literature, art, and archaeology of ancient Egypt. In addition, Demotic or Coptic is required. Qualified students may have an opportunity to participate in the Department’s programs of excavation in Egypt. Research funds are often available to allow students to carry out dissertation research in Egypt when necessary. For more information, see The Yale Egyptological Institute in Egypt.
