Teaching Requirement

All candidates for the Ph.D are required to teach for at least two semesters under the supervision of the Graduate Group. In practice, students normally teach four semesters, during the second and third years of the program.

A typical teaching sequence in the second year is Elementary Latin (Latin 101-102) or Intermediate Latin (203-204). In the third year, students teach in such courses as: CLST 100 Greek and Roman Myth; CLST 140 Scandalous Arts in Ancient and Modern Societies; ANCH 026 Ancient Greece; ANCH 027 Ancient Rome; CLST 402 Postbaccalaureate Greek; CLST 403 Postbaccalaureate Latin.

There are also opportunities for interested students to teach intensive Greek and Latin courses during summer sessions, though this is not a required part of the program.

First-time teachers are required to participate in the Center for Teaching and Learning's orientation prior to the beginning of classes in the fall, and are encouraged to take advantage of other CTL resources and workshops.

First-time language teachers are also required to enroll in the Language Pedagogy Workshop (CLST 598) for the fall semester (see Coursework Requirement).
