Program Details

The University of Florida’s Master of Latin is a graduate level course of study that is administered through the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and under the Department of Classics. In today’s current market, most teachers cannot afford to take the time off of work to pursue an extended course of study. This has restricted high school teachers, as well as college instructors, from building onto their education and pursuing a graduate degree. This program’s distance learning delivery was designed by the Department of Classics with working teaching professionals in mind.

The M.L.’s curriculum consists of 30 credit hours. Some of the coursework that comprises these credit hours includes Latin Prose Composition, five seminars in classes other than independent or directed study, and participation in at least two Summer Latin Institutes. Additional requirements associated with this program include a Comprehensive Latin Reading Examination, which is based on the M.L. Latin Reading List. This examination presents the student with four passages, two of which are prose and the other two are poetry. The student must translate three of the four passages correctly. Additionally, students will participate in a Comprehensive Written and Oral Examination in Latin. The written portion takes two hours, and the oral portion takes one hour. Both of these portions are based upon the M.L. Literature and Culture Reading List. Upon successful completion of all 30 credits, students may possess a thorough understanding of Latin.
