Welcome to the Department of Greek and Latin!
A bachelor's degree in any area of classics will open your mind, polish your skills, and challenge your assumptions. Studying at CUA and perhaps abroad as well, you will join one of the oldest and most prestigious disciplines in academia--and be amazed at how relevant the ancient world is to the modern one.
An MA opens a world of possibilities: museum work, secondary-level teaching, research and archiving, librarianship, publishing, or the path towards a university career, just to name a few. Immerse yourself in the literature and culture of ancient Greece and Rome--and see where it takes you.
The PhD in Greek and Latin at CUA builds on the classical MA program by focusing on late antiquity, patristics, or the Middle Ages. Courses are offered every semester on the literature of these eras, and an individualized exam process prepares students to write dissertations that break new ground.
Anyone who has completed a bachelor's degree in any field can apply for the certificate programs: no prior Greek or Latin is required. Certificates are graduate-level qualifications that show advanced competency in one or both classical languages. Always dreamed about trying classics? Now is your chance!
