    Fall 2019 Applicants

    Hi guys. I've seen people in other areas begin threads for the Fall 2019 applicants, so I figured I would start the Classics thread. I'm graduating in May and working on applying to a large variety of Masters and Ph.D programs related to Classical Archaeology.
  2. Hi, I'm currently an English undergrad student. But I'm planning to do my masters in Classics. (We'll narrow it down once we reach that bridge) I have zero background in the languages, Latin or ancient Greek and due to the lack of resources/programs (again, zero) in my country about classics, I have to apply to the programs offered by the universities abroad. Due to my lack of language background and to make up for three years of language requirement to get a PhD in Classics, I'm going to do a post baccalaureate. So I have my post bacc narrowed to three universities, but what I wanted to know if that's a fulfilling way to go on about it? Has anyone done a post bacc and then joined the masters in classics? And done a PhD? Is there any other way this can be achieved? Also, how is the student life during a post bacc, amount of hours and the study required? Because I do love the classics and I plan on making a future in academia in the same (I'm well aware of how terribly awful it sounds, a narrowing field with a dying subject)
  3. So, aside from Coursera and other similar MOOCs, what is the best way to keep up/up to date/refresh Classics information if you have a decently sized gap between your undergraduate degree and when you pursue your MA? I am currently getting my Master of Arts in Museum Studies, so aside from MOOCs or the University of Georgia Post-Bacc (which I would like to do but can't afford at the moment), what can I do to show my potential as a graduate student and show that I have not left the Classics/Classical Studies behind while I studied museum work and worked in a museum that is more history based with natural history and state history rather than a Classical collection. I have taken the free online courses from Coursera, Udemy, Hillsdale College, and so on, always related to the ancient world or Jewish folk in antiquity. I have recently began to work my way through my old Latin textbook and bought the workbook for it (since I did not have that in undergrad), and will soon do the same with my ancient Greek book. I don't have many opportunities in taking courses in person, as Las Vegas does not have any kind of Classics program and I don't have a lot of money that I can pay out of pocket for online courses. Is keeping up through self study and MOOCs enough for a three and a half year gap between when I graduated with my undergrad degree and when I plan on applying to my graduate degree? Or is it advised that I find a way to retake courses to brush up and get better grades than what I had previously?
  4. Hi all! I’ll be attending Brandeis University’s Ancient Greek and Roman Studies masters program this fall. I’ve been out of school for some time and was wondering if anyone who either has been in the program or a similar one, can recommend some “essential” Latin and Greek, as well as general knowledge, texts that I should read before my program begins. I’m doing the Ancient Civilizations track so there should a much smaller focus on languages but I still don’t want to go in completely unaware. Thanks for your help and I’m looking forward to hearing your suggestions!
  5. Hello, I am hunting around for a Master of Arts program in Classics / Classical Studies / Ancient History (preferably Classical Studies so I am getting both the language and culture courses in my MA), but my issue is that I would need to pursue the program online. I would prefer the school be based in the United States (non-profit, no for-profit schools) as I would need to get financial aid to attend, and there are little to no scholarships that I have found that would apply to a distance program learner, especially one that is for an American student attending a British school at a distance (if you know of one or more and want to share, it would be much appreciated). So far, the only school I have found that is a non-profit school in America that allows a Classical Studies Master's degree to be taken completely online is Villanova University in Pennsylvania. The downside of this is that the school is synchronous, and I currently live in Las Vegas, so arranging the time to be able to go to class would be doable but challenging. My second option is a distance program through a school in the United Kingdom, but those are my final option due to the lack of being able to do it right out of pocket. I also know of the Harvard Extension School, but as that requires residency and beginning the courses by paying out of your own pocket, I would not be able to pursue that path, either. The reason I want a Master of Arts in Classical Studies as an online program is because the local University doesn't have an option for Classical languages or archaeology or ancient history, but I cannot yet afford to move to a place that would offer such a program. The local university is also notorious for delaying graduation for their students by not offering the courses they need to graduate, so I wanted to avoid that as well. If anyone knows of any other non-profit schools, please let me know. I would need it to be without a residency requirement (the maximum I could be gone would be 2 weeks and I doubt I would be able to afford that, regardless) but would consider schools with short residences. I will be fine if Villanova is my only option, but I wanted to see if there were more schools I may have missed? I would prefer asynchronous coursework, but synchronous would be doable. Thank you all in advance!

    What did you decide?

    Is everyone all settled? What did you ultimately decide? Where are you going? Have you decided to wait until the next cycle? I am going to the University of Kentucky for something a little different than the standard Classics PhD.

    Deferral?

    Hello! As we're all figuring out our plans for next year, I have a question that doesn't seem to have come up yet. What's the deal with deferrals? It seems that few graduate departments have their deferral policies listed on their website, and certainly no mention is made of it at visiting weekends so far. I know that our cohort sizes are quite small, so discouraging deferrals to an extent makes sense--but to what extent are they discouraged? What are acceptable reasons for deferring, if any? I haven't made my decision about graduate school yet, and I don't want to frighten any grad schools by asking about this and making them think I won't come next year (I do intend to attend grad school next year... but there is another great 1 year thing--originally a back up plan--that I'm waiting to hear about). Help?
  8. I think that there is a case for each generation to interact with the material from our patrimony, so I think that is at least one reason why new translations are a good idea. While Latin isn't really changing, vernacular languages certainly are. English is not the same as it was ten, twenty, fifty, three-hundred years ago. What do you think?

    Latinist or Hellenist?

    If you have chosen to cleave to one language over another, are you a Hellenist or a Latinist? It's perfectly okay to be either, or both. I am just wondering what people here think.

    MA or MAT to become a Latin teacher?

    Hey y'all! I'm trying to pick from my acceptances, and I keep coming back to this question: would it be better to get an M.A.T. or an M.A.? I also have another dilemma. A couple of my MA/MAT programs are offered through education departments, so I would take more education and less classics courses. My other programs are offered through classics departments, so I would take more classics and less education courses. Any advice or opinions? I'm ready to become a high school Latin teacher, but this April 15 deadline is making me nervous! Gratias, Philomeides
  11. Greetings, I am currently a Classical Languages undergraduate student at USouth Carolina. Upon graduation I will have roughly 4 years of Latin, 3 years of German, 2 years of Greek, 2 years of Old English, and 1 year of Old Norse. I will also have some various Medieval era courses. I want to attend a top Medieval Studies graduate program but am worried that having an undergrad degree in Classics rather than Medieval Studies (which my school doesn't have) may set me back. My sophomore undergraduate research is on Proto Indo European\, but my Senior thesis will obviously be on a medieval topic. Can anyone shed light on whether this will be of detriment to my acceptance chances? Thanks,
