Graduate Programs

The Department offers an MA in Greek and Latin with a thesis and non-thesis option and an MAT in Latin in conjunction with the College of Education. (For details about these programs click on the appropriate link below.) We enroll 3-4 new students each year, and typically are able to offer some assistance to the most qualified applicants in the form of a Graduate Teaching Assistantship and/or through the Department's Prindle-Myrick-Kidder scholarship. Classics applicants have also fared well in the University-wide competition for scholarships awarded by the Graduate College. Our program is strongly philological and geared toward students who want excellent preparation in Greek and Latin language and in the craft of scholarship. Recent graduates of our program have gone on fully-funded to PhD programs at, e.g., The University of Chicago, University College London, Indiana University, NYU, Johns Hopkins, Berkeley, Princeton, Yale, Duke, Cornell, University College Dublin, and Florida State. Other graduates are employed as secondary school teachers across the country, with several right here in Vermont.
