HyoSil Suzy Hwang completed and defended her dissertation, "Manipulating the Divine Right to Rule in Royal Art and Architecture of the Hellenistic Period." in the Spring of 2014, under the direction of Professor Marjorie Venit. Suzy received her MA at the University of Maryland with her thesis, "Uncoiling the Laocoön: Revealing the Statue Group's Significance in Augustan Rome". During her graduate career, Suzy also participated in the American School of Classical Studies in Athens' summer program, traveling extensively throughout Greece's archaeological sites. Suzy has been affiliated with Maryland's School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation as well, working at the ancient Roman sites of Pompeii and Stabiae for two summers, attending a winter course in Egypt, and holding a graduate fellowship at the School's Visual Resource Collection - all possible through her reception of generous fellowships.

W. Marshall, New York: Oxford University Press, 2011.
