  1. 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 dista
  2. Hello, all! So I wanted to know for those of you who did a MAT in Latin or were required to take the Latin Praxis test as part of your MA requirements, did you do any kind of test prep or use any guide of some sort? How would you suggest preparing for the test? There's not much information about this so I'd like to see what y'all would suggest. Thank you in advance!
  3. Hello all, I just had a question. I currently have a BA and would love to go to grad school, but I can't figure out what sort of career path I would want to pursue. The reason for that is this: I am immensely passionate about and good at languages, and I love helping people learn them and walking them through grammar and conversation. I know I would love teaching at the university level (absolutely not high school though), but I have absolutely no interest in research or publishing. I don't mean that in a "lazy" sort of way; my interests simply lie in teaching rather than publishing. The
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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 wi
  7. 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!
  8. Hello all, Since I'm a pretty logical and practical person, I've been trying to come up with backup plans in case I don't get into a program due to my less-than-stellar undergraduate record. In the event that I do not get accepted, I have been knocking around the idea of applying to University of Georgia's Post-Bacc program and wanted to know if anyone has had experience in this program? Not just the application process, but how the program is set up, the difficulty level of the classes, etc. Thanks in advance!
  9. 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 scho
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
