The Cotsen Institute of Archaeology
The Cotsen Institute of Archaeology http://www.ioa.ucla.edu/ at UCLA 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. Several departmental faculty are members of the Institute.
UCLA has been at the forefront of Digital Humanities for more than a decade http://www.cdh.ucla.edu/. The Graduate Certificate in Digital Humanities was designed in part by faculty in our department and welcomes Classics graduate students.
The Program in Indo-European Studies http://www.pies.ucla.edu is one of the most prestigious programs of its kind in the world. Classics offers a Graduate Certificate in Classics to interested students in PIES, and PIES too offers a Graduate Certificate in Indo-European Studies in which Classics graduate students are welcome.
LGBTS at UCLA is a program and offers a concentration through Gender Studies. The program each year sponsors the (huge) LA Queer Studies Conference, which welcomes grad student papers.

Gender Studies at UCLA is a department, but it is still possible for students in other departments to graduate with a concentration in Gender Studies and apply for their grants and fellowships.
