The Latin/Greek Institute Application Deadlines

The Latin/Greek Institute offers total-immersion programs in Latin or Ancient Greek that enable students to master the material normally covered in two to three years in a single summer. Founded in 1973 as a collaborative effort between Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center, the Institute is the most intensive summer language program of its kind. All programs are team-taught by experienced instructors. Hourly rotation of faculty provides for exposure to a variety of approaches, and faculty closely mentor and advise students. Our graduates typically return to their home institutions prepared to excel in advanced or upper-division reading courses and to pass graduate departmental translation exams.

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.

The deadline for the Basic Programs is April 15, 2014.
The deadline for Upper-level Latin is April 1, 2014.

Applications may be obtained from the office of the Latin/Greek Institute, The Graduate Center, CUNY, 365 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10016; you may call us at 212.817.2081 or e-mail us. The admissions committee meets regularly, and we notify successful candidates as soon as possible after we receive the completed application.
