M.A. - Classical Languages

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Department of Classics at the University of Georgia offers graduate work leading to the Master of Arts degree in Classical Languages (Greek, Latin, or Greek and Latin). The graduate program is designed to give students a broad knowledge of the field of Classics and deepen their understanding of the ancient world, as well as to develop mastery of the languages.
All students take the Proseminar, an introduction to research tools and practices, taught collectively by the graduate faculty. Students also take a number of survey courses in which they read substantial selections from a wide range of authors and develop their interpretive skills. In addition, they take 2 to 3 graduates-only seminars, based on their chosen area of emphasis. Most students also take the Latin Teaching Apprenticeship, which prepares them to teach their own sections of elementary Latin the following year.
Students may earn graduate credits for coursework completed in our study abroad offerings as well as up to six hours of credit for work completed at other institutions, subject to departmental approval.
