PhD in Classical Civilization


Most teachers cannot afford to leave their jobs, their families, and their homes to pursue graduate degrees. The Department of Classics at the University of Florida has established a post-professional program intended to help teachers of Latin advance their expertise in the discipline by taking graduate-level distance courses during the regular academic year (Fall and Spring) so that they can complete degree requirements while maintaining their local residency and keeping their current employment. To complement the online coursework, the two-week Summer Institute in Latin is held on the University of Florida campus in Gainesville where our distance students benefit from the opportunities that the traditional classroom provides.

The PhD in Classical Civilization is designed for high school teachers and community college teachers who wish to improve their skills, prepare for serious research, and improve their credentials with a more general emphasis in classical civilization.
