MA in Classics: Greek and Latin

The M.A. in Classics (Greek and Latin) allows students to focus on coursework in Greek and Latin literature. It is appropriate for students who enter with strong language skills and is designed to prepare them for advanced graduate work at the Ph.D. level or for careers in secondary-school teaching. Students intending to pursue advanced work at the Ph.D. level, however, should take care to choose courses that will satisfy the minimum admissions requirements of Ph.D. programs, as these requirements may exceed the minimum requirements of this degree.
