Master of Arts in Classics

A deep knowledge of the classical world can lead you to see the influence of ancient Greece and Rome everywhere you go. From the structure of modern languages to the architectural form of the city of Detroit, classical echoes are around us every day. Our master of arts in classics offers concentrations in Ancient Studies, Greek & Latin, and Latin, and can help prepare you for a doctoral program or any number of careers, including in law, medicine, archives, and more.

Students admitted to the program normally have an undergraduate degree in classics, but the department welcomes students whose preparation in classics is deficient in some area (usually language) that prevents them from pursuing further graduate study or employment in classics.

Previous graduates of our program hold a variety of high school and college-level teaching positions, have been admitted to prestigious Ph.D. programs, or are employed in fields outside classics.
