ON UNIVERSITY DEGREES IN NUMISMATICS

Kerry K. Wetterstrom, Editor/Publisher of The Celator writes:

I've found the E-Sylum discussion on the Roosevelt University's numismatic program very interesting, and thought it might be interesting for someone to contact Jon Kern about his degree in numismatics. If I remember correctly, he has a Bachelor of Science degree in numismatics from the University of Kentucky. It would be interesting to know the details of how he earned his degree, etc.

Degrees in numismatics, usually through archeology programs, are relatively common in Europe, but I'm only aware of Jon Kern and Don Kagan having numismatic degrees from American universities.

Yes, it's unusual in the U.S., but much more common in Europe and elsewhere. Why is that, I wonder? -Editor

Ken Berger writes:

With all the discussion about numismatic education and Roosevelt University, I seemed to recall that Adelphi University started a numismatic program in the 1970s. So, upon doing some quick checking, I found mention of the Institute of Numismatic and Philatelic Studies at Adelphi University in New York.

So, can anyone tell us about the Adelphi program? -Editor
