The Latin/Greek Institute should not be a student's first serious experience in the study of a foreign language. Applicants should demonstrate previous success in language-learning. The experience of more than 40 years has shown that the successful student will possess a good knowledge of English syntax, strong memory skills and a willingness to sustain for a full 10 weeks his or her commitment to the rigorous work of the program. No successful applicant should enroll who has any other demands during the summer (e.g., term papers, jobs, projects, family problems).
Candidates for admission to any program offered by the Latin/Greek Institute should be able to provide evidence of seriousness of purpose, motivation and considerable language ability.
Please apply using the online forms for the Basic Programs and Upper-level Greek.
The deadline for the Basic Programs is April 13, 2017.
The deadline for Upper-level Greek is March 30, 2017.
