Summer Intensive Introductory Ancient Greek

June 19-August 11
Summer Introductory Ancient Greek comprises a thorough introduction to the Classical Greek language in eight weeks, using the Joint Association of Classic Teachers' Reading Greek (2nd ed.). In daily classes, students learn new grammatical concepts and morphology, practice reading and translating increasingly complex Greek texts, and complete exercises in Greek to gain an active command of the language. In the latter half of the course, students will also read unadapted Greek from classical prose authors, including Plato and Xenophon. By the end of the 8 weeks, students will be thoroughly familiar with Classical Greek idiom and sentence structure, and will be able to proceed to reading courses in the language.

Summer Introductory Ancient Greek is an intensive course that requires a full-time commitment on the part of the student, meeting approximately 5 hours per day and demanding independent review and memorization in the evenings.

Summer Intensive Intermediate Ancient Greek

June 19-July 28
Summer Intensive Intermediate Greek combines extensive reading of texts with a comprehensive review of Classical grammar and syntax; it prepares students for advanced courses in Greek and for the use of Greek texts in their research. Texts studied are taken from a variety of representative and important Classical authors, and typically include Plato and Herodotus, Demosthenes or Thucydides. The backbone of the review sessions is Mastronarde’s Introduction to Ancient Greek combined with sight reading skill practice. The program meets during both mornings and afternoons for approximately five hours a day. Students are responsible for considerable amounts of class preparation in the evenings, requiring a full-time commitment for the duration of the course. This course equips students to continue with advanced coursework or independent reading in Ancient Greek in all its varieties. Summer Intermediate Greek corresponds to a full year's worth of instruction at the University of
 Chicago.

Penn’s department of Classical Studies is a renowned community of scholars and students working on diverse areas of the Greco-Roman world, from language and literature to history to archaeology to reception studies. Each summer we offer a wide range of courses, ranging from intensive Latin and Greek to ancient Greek and Roman history, myth, and culture. Many of the courses are ideal for undergraduate and graduate students who wish to spend the summer accelerating their preparation for further study. Each of the intensive language courses covers the equivalent of one year’s coursework in six weeks, and the intermediate courses will fully prepare students for advanced courses. The other courses are suitable both for students new to the Greco-Roman world or are looking to extend their knowledge into new areas of specialization.
