The Department of Classics at the University of Florida offers an M.A. degree in Latin, an M.A.T. degree in Latin, as well as a Master of Latin degree. Students are expected to become Florida residents after one year.
The Master of Arts in Latin is a thesis degree designed specifically for students who are aiming toward a career in secondary teaching, but who still desire the writing experience and credential that a thesis provides.
The Master of Arts in the Teaching of Latin (M.A.T.) is recommended for students who wish to pursue a career in teaching and who want to include educational courses in their program. This is a non-thesis degree.
The Master of Latin (M.L.) degree is designed primarily for currently employed, and/or certified teaching professionals who wish to widen their knowledge of Latin, broaden their education in the field of Classics, and enhance their professional qualifications. This is a non-thesis degree.
Admission Requirements to the Latin Programs:
Admission into the university and the program for Classics is ultimately determined and granted according to the rules established by the Graduate School of the University of Florida (see the Graduate Catalog).
All students seeking admission to the department must submit satisfactory scores on the GRE General Test (with at least 320 [old scoring scale] or 140 [new scoring scale on the verbal portion).
Master’s level (Level I) requirements include:
- Extensive study of Greek and Latin, with at least three years of coursework in one language and at least two years in the other language.
- At least six hours in one or more of the following: ancient history, ancient art, archaeology, philosophy, literary criticism, linguistics.
- A GPA of at least a 3.0.
- Deficiencies that can be corrected within one year will not necessarily prevent admission, if the record shows promise on other grounds.
