The Department of Classics at the University of Georgia offers graduate work in Latin, Greek, or classic languages leading to the Master of Arts degree. The graduate program, which requires nine graduate courses, a thesis, and reading knowledge of French, German, or Italian, is designed to give students a broad knowledge of the field of classics and deepen their understanding of the ancient world.

All students must take the Proseminar (CLAS 8000), an introduction to research tools and practices, taught collectively by the graduate faculty. Students must also take between six and nine hours of GREK 6200: History of Greek Literature and LATN 6400: History of Latin Literature. These classes are demanding surveys of prose and poetry that cover the tradition of Greek and Latin literature, emphasizing translation of substantial selections from a wide range of authors and the acquisition of reading strategies. Students interested in teaching in secondary schools have the chance to acquire both theoretical and practical training specific to their field by taking LATN 7770: Latin Teaching Apprenticeship. Each year, several students have the opportunity to teach their own sections of elementary Latin.

Graduate students may participate in the UGA Studies Abroad Program in Rome, Italy and earn six semester hours of graduate credit. Other relevant programs may be approved for graduate credit on an ad-hoc basis. Masters work in Latin can be completed on a summers-only basis in our Classics Summer Institute. All degree programs in the department are designed to be completed in two years.that are attractive to students with varying goals and effective in helping them to further their career objectives. The M.A. program provides students with a firm grounding in the classical world, with particular emphasis on the linguistic, historical, archaeological and interpretative skills necessary for engaging it. The program draws candidates from all over the United States and generally enrolls 12-15 students during the academic year and an additional 12-15 in our Summer Institute, a program designed for high school Latin teachers who want to earn an M.A. in Latin during the summers.
