Graduate School Bulletin - Spring 2005

CLASSICS

The Department of Modern and Classical Languages, Literatures and Cultures offers the M.A. degree in Classics under both Plan A (thesis) and Plan B (non-thesis) options.

Each student will normally elect either Latin literature, Greek literature, or a combination of the two as an area of concentration. A program of courses will be selected from the list below with the advice of the Director of Graduate Studies. Appropriate courses in other areas of graduate study outside of the Department may be added with the approval of the Director of Graduate Studies. Individualized course programs are arranged for students who are preparing for secondary school teaching or who have additional interests in fields other than Classics. Normally the M.A. program is completed in two years of full-time study.

For additional information and details about graduate study in the Department, contact the Director of Graduate Studies.

Admission Requirements

The requirements for admission to the program in Classics are (a) a combined score of 1000 on any two of the three parts of the Graduate Record Examination and (b) an undergraduate grade point average of 3.0 or above on a 4.0 scale. The Director of Graduate Studies may admit students with lower GRE scores or an undergraduate grade point average below 3.0 if, on the basis of a student's last two years of work, classics grades, or general academic competence, he or she believes the student capable of successful graduate work.

The Department also requires from each applicant a two- or three-paragraph statement describing his or her reasons for seeking a master's degree, and three letters of reference from former professors or teachers. There is no special form to be filled out for letters of reference. All of these materials should be sent via e-mail by Feb. 1 to the Director of Graduate Studies, classics@lsv.uky.edu, or by regular mail to:
