In addition to the specific requirements listed below, see the Master's Degrees and Doctoral Degrees sections of the Rackham Graduate School Academic Policies.


Master of Arts

The A.M. in Greek, the A.M. in Latin, and the A.M. in Latin with Teaching Certification are normally terminal degrees, intended for the preparation of secondary school teachers or as supplementary degree programs.  We regularly admit students to the A.M. in Latin with Teaching Certification program.  Admission to the A.M. in Greek and the A.M. in Latin program is under special circumstances only as they are used primarily for students already pursuing a Ph.D. degree at Michigan in a related discipline.  Contact the department for more information.

The degree Master of Arts in Classical Studies is awarded only to students enrolled in the Ph.D. program (see below) after completion of 24 credit hours, including required courses. It is not a separate degree program to which students can apply.

Specific requirements of the department:

Admission: Applicants for the A.M. in Greek should have completed two years of classical Greek at the college level; applicants for the A.M. in Latin or the A.M. in Latin with teaching certification should have completed three years of college Latin (four years if the language was begun in college). Letters of recommendation, transcripts of all previous academic records, and a completed application are required; GRE scores are required for the A.M. in Latin with Teaching Certification.

Minimum Number of Credits Required: 24 credit hours for the A.M. in Greek and the A.M. in Latin; 42 credit hours for the A.M. in Latin with Teaching Certification.

Specific Course Requirements: For the A.M. in ancient Greek, not less than 12 hours must be in courses in the ancient Greek language; for the A.M. in Latin, not less than 12 hours in courses in Latin. Four hours of the 24 must be in approved cognate courses; however, up to six hours may be. For cognate work the following fields are especially recommended: ancient history, Greek or Roman archaeology, classical linguistics, ancient philosophy; for the A.M. in Greek, Latin language and literature are also recommended; for the A.M. in Latin, Greek language and literature are also recommended. For the A.M. in Latin with Teaching Certification, not less than 24 hours must be in courses in Latin and 18 hours must be in 6 specific professional education courses; directed teaching in a secondary school is also required. In addition, the department requires the passing of sight examinations in the major language.

Thesis or Research Essay: None.

Final Examination: None.


Doctor of Philosophy

Admission: Applicants should have completed two years of classical Greek at the college level and three years of Latin (four years if Latin was begun in college), and must show a superior record (A's and B's) in classical courses. Holders of the A.M. degree in Latin or other classical subjects, from the University of Michigan or elsewhere, must make application for admission to the Ph.D. program, showing that they have satisfied the entrance requirement in both Greek and Latin. Letters of recommendation, transcripts of all previous academic records, GRE scores, a writing sample, and a completed application are required. The total amount of coursework required for admission to candidacy for the degree approximates three years of full-time study.

Specific Course Requirements: Part of the work is in required courses (special reading and lecture courses, courses in Greek and Latin composition, proseminars, and seminars), the rest in electives. The program for the degree Doctor of Philosophy in Classical Studies, while placing strong emphasis on proficiency in Greek and Latin and on the study of considerable amounts of Greek and Roman literature in the original, also aims to give students a careful grounding in the tools, methods and achievements of classical scholarship, not only along literary (philological) lines but also in one or more related disciplines such as classical archaeology, epigraphy, ancient history, Roman law, and papyrology. The two-course Rackham cognate requirement must also be fulfilled.

Qualifying Examinations: Qualifying examinations in the translation of Greek and Latin passages from the Ph.D. reading list must be taken not later than the end of the second year.

Work Experience Requirement: A minimum of two terms of experience as a teaching or research assistant are required.

Foreign Language Requirement: In addition to Greek and Latin, the student must show competency by examination in French and German. Also, command of Italian is recommended.

Preliminary Examinations: An examination covering ancient history is required by the end of the first year; preliminary examinations (covering the history of Greek and Roman literature, two special authors, and a special field) will be given normally at the end of the third year. The history of literature requirement can be satisfied by coursework.

Candidate Status: Candidacy requirements are described in the Doctoral Degrees section of the Rackham Graduate School Academic Policies. Admission to candidacy for the degree will be recommended after satisfactory completion of the preliminary examinations, course requirements, and modern language examinations.
