The University of Memphis has two separate departments that offer degrees with a concentration in Ancient Egypt: the master and bachelor of arts programs in Art History in the Department of Art in the College of Communication and Fine Arts and the master of arts and doctoral programs in the Department of History in the College of Arts and Sciences.
