Greek and Latin Languages
Students and scholars in many disciplines (e.g. classics, history, English, Medieval studies, religious studies, philosophy) need proficiency in Latin and Greek to carry out research. Other students come to classics too late in their undergraduate career to acquire language proficiency at a level which qualifies them for Ph.D. or M.A.T. programs. Still other students are high school teachers who want to expand their repertoire of teaching subjects or who simply want to improve their mastery of their subject matter. Every year, excellent students inquire about the M.A. program who do not have sufficient Greek or Latin. Although some students may need to take a course or 2 prior to formally beginning the program in order to bring their Greek or Latin up to the level at which courses count for the certificate, this certificate offers an intensive language experience designed for such students.
