The Department of Classics at the University of Maryland, College Park offers a graduate program of study in Classics with specializations in Latin or Latin and Greek leading to the degree of Master of Arts. 


Program Objectives

The goal of our Classics program at University of Maryland is to provide advanced course work in Latin and/or Greek language and literature and to place ancient literary texts in the broader context of ancient Greek and Roman culture and civilization.  To accommodate secondary school teachers and students with employment and other obligations during the daytime, all of our advanced Latin and Greek courses are held in the late afternoon and early evening, or in the form of Saturday workshops.  Students may enroll on a full-time or part-time basis.

Graduate students in the department serve as teaching assistants in lower-level literature and classical civilization courses and actively participate in its conferences and workshops for secondary school and university faculty on diverse topics—which in recent years have included gendered responses to Latin literature and its reception, classical influences in the work of Thornton Wilder, and classics in the historically black colleges and universities.  Our graduate students also present individual and collaborative papers at regional classics conferences.
