Program Overview

The University of Florida’s Doctor of Philosophy in Classical Civilization is offered through a hybrid format. This program is delivered by the university’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and administered under the Department of Classics. This program is intended for high school teachers and community college teachers who desire to continue their education and improve their skills, prepare for serious research, and improve their credentials with a more general emphasis in classical civilization.

This program’s primarily distance learning delivery was designed with working professionals in mind; those wouldn’t normally have the freedom to pursue a traditional graduate degree on-campus due to family, location, or work commitments. Students enrolled in this course of study may be able to immediately apply the knowledge they gain in class to their current practices.

This program’s curriculum consists of 90 credit hours beyond a bachelor’s degree, or 60 credits beyond a Master of Arts Degree. Some of the courses students will take through this program include Latin Prose Composition, six seminars in Classical Civilization or Latin, and participation in at least three Summer Latin Institutes. Additional credit may be earned through extra seminars and elective coursework chosen based on the student’s personal interests and professional goals. Students may also have the opportunity to participate in independent study projects, advanced research, and dissertation research.
