The MA in Classical Studies program trains students in the language skills and critical methods of scholarship required for advanced studies in classics. The program is designed primarily to prepare students either for the teaching of Latin or Greek language, literature, and culture at the secondary level or for the pursuit of a PhD in classics or related fields. We seek students of outstanding ability and imagination who wish to communicate their enthusiasm to others, primarily as teachers. Typically, successful applicants have a minimum of three years (or the equivalent) of Greek or Latin. A minimum of eight courses (32 credits) is required for an MA in Classical Studies. The requirements are as follows: CAS CL 563: Greek Prose Composition or CAS CL 530: Latin Prose Composition Seven additional courses at or above the 500 level offered in the Department of Classical Studies or related departments (with advisor approval). Among these, one course in Greek or Roman history is required. Students typically concentrate in either Latin or Greek. One course in Greek or Roman art or archaeology is recommended. Students who wish to take more than two courses from related departments must receive approval from the director of graduate studies. The history requirement can also be fulfilled by taking an undergraduate history course as a graduate directed study (2 credits) or by passing an examination in history.
