The Greek and Latin degree offered by University of Vermont is strongly philological and geared toward students who want excellent preparation in Greek and Latin language and in the craft of scholarship.
Learning Goals for M.A. in Greek and Latin:
- That students acquire advanced knowledge of the morphology, vocabulary, syntax, and idiom of ancient Greek and Latin prose and poetry (sufficient to pursue PhD work if they so desire);
- That they have detailed, accurate knowledge of, and sensitivity to, the historical and literary context of key works of Greek and Latin literature (e.g., authors, genres, periods, characters/persons, reception/influence);
- That they be conversant with contemporary scholarship in Classics and the research methods (both literary and historical) used in interpreting ancient literature and culture.
Our program emphasizes mastery of general philological skills in Greek and Latin, in preparation for further training at the doctoral level, teaching in public and private highschools, and a variety of other interesting paths.
Current faculty research interests include Mycenaean and Homeric Greece; Greek and Latin lyric poetry; Greek drama; Attic orators; ancient literary criticism; Greek and Roman philosophy and intellectual history; Greek and Roman historiography; Latin epic and satire; Greek and Roman technical authors; Roman imperial families; mythology; the Ancient Near East and Egypt; ancient music and performance.
