Return to Majors & Minors Return to: Majors & Minors

The Post-Baccalaureate Program offers a flexible course of study for students who have an undergraduate degree and who wish to pursue an intensive program in the Classical languages in preparation for graduate studies, teaching, or personal enrichment. Students in the program take specific courses in Latin, Greek, and classical civilization appropriate to their level of preparation. For more information, please see the Classical Studies web page.

Requirements for the Certificate


The Post-Baccalaureate Program is designed to be as flexible as possible in order to allow students to take course that will suit their interests and needs. All entering post-baccalaureate students work with the post-baccalaureate advisor in the Department to design an appropriate course of study. Upon completion of the program, students will be awarded a post-baccalaureate certificate in Classical Studies. In order to earn the certificate each student must:

  • earn at least 13 credits in the program.
  • complete at least two semesters in the program.
  • enroll in at least one course each semester in Latin or Greek.
  • earn at least six credits at the advanced 300-level or above in either Latin or Greek.
  • earn at least six credits at the intermediate 200-level or above in the other language (whichever is not met for the previous requirement).
  • complete a one-credit proseminar in the first semester that provides an introduction to research methods and resources in Classical Studies.

In addition to courses in Latin, Greek and the proseminar, post-baccalaureate students may also enroll in other classes offered by the Department in Hebrew and Classical Civilization. Please note that the Post-Baccalaureate Program is not a graduate program, nor does the successful completion of the program guarantee admission to any graduate program.
