The Classics program offers an M.A. in Classics and an M.A. in Teaching Latin, through the Department’s Master of Arts in Teaching World Languages Program (MATWL). We are also home to the UK Institute for Latin Studies which offers a unique graduate level certificate program featuring the use of active speaking to gain a superior command of Latin and a broad sweep through the entire tradition of Latin from antiquity to the present day.
The M.A. program in Classics in the Department of Modern and Classical Languages, Literatures, and Cultures offers a degree with courses in Greek and Latin languages, literatures and cultures, as well as allied offerings in ancient and medieval history, ancient and medieval philosophy, archaeology, Greek and Roman art, Early Christian studies, and Renaissance studies. The mission of the M.A. Program is to train classicists who would become Latin teachers, or who, having obtained a solid knowledge of the classical languages (active knowledge of Latin is offered through the program), would pursue a Ph.D. degree in Classics, History, Philosophy, Divinity, or other related fields.
Program requirements may change at any time. Contact the DGS of your intended program to confirm requirements.
