Graduate Admission Requirements

We regret to announce that admissions to the PhD program in Classics have been suspended for the 2020-2021 cycle due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are continuing to accept applications to our MA program. We look forward to accepting PhD applications again in Fall 2021.

Prospective graduate students should have as strong a preparation as possible in Latin and Greek, preferably a full undergraduate major. Although the M.A. may be attained with work in only one of the languages, students who plan to work toward the Ph.D. must be prepared to do graduate work in both Latin and Greek.

The application to our graduate program is completed and submitted online.  Instructions on how to apply, with a link to the online application, may be found in the Application Procedures section of our website.

Applications for admission WITH FUNDING are due on January 5.  Applications to the Graduate School WITHOUT consideration for an Assistantship or Fellowship are accepted until July 1 for Autumn Quarter, November 1 for Winter Quarter, February 1 for Spring Quarter, and May 15 for Summer Quarter, but students are encouraged to apply by the January 5th deadline.
