THE M.A. IN CLASSICS with Specialization in Greek (or Latin) is a terminal degree program. This degree does not lead to a Ph.D. in Classics, but it can be linked to graduate study in another field (e.g. Religious Studies or English). If your intent is to pursue a Ph.D. in Classics, then apply to the Masters Program in Classics.
- Twenty-four hours in Greek or Latin in regular courses, including GRK or LAT 411, with at least twelve hours at the 500 level.
- CLCV 550 and four hours of an appropriate elective. Students who wish to do so may fulfill this requirement by writing a Masters thesis; they should enroll in Greek/Latin 599 (Thesis Research). MA theses typically fall between 15,000-24,000 words. Only in exceptional cases will a thesis under the minimum be awarded credit. It is, however, permitted to exceed the maximum.
- Passing an MA exam in the translation of Greek or Latin.
