Summer Intensive Introductory Ancient Greek
Summer Intensive Intermediate Ancient Greek
Summer Intensive Introductory Latin
Summer Intensive Introductory Latin
Summer Intensive Intermediate Akkadian
Summer Intensive Introductory Hittite

The University of Chicago will again offer intensive courses in Ancient Greek and Latin, and new for 2016, will also offer intensive courses in Akkadian and Hittite.

Summer Introductory Ancient Greek comprises a thorough introduction to the Classical Greek language in 8 weeks (6/20-8/12), 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 Intensive Intermediate Greek is a 6-week program (6/20-7/29) that 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.

Summer Intensive Introductory Latin offers a comprehensive introduction to Classical Latin language in 8 weeks (6/20-8/12), using Keller and Russell's Learn to Read Latin. In daily classes, students learn new grammatical concepts and morphology, practice reading and translating increasingly complex Latin texts, and complete exercises in Latin to gain an active command of the language. Students will also read unadapted Latin from classical authors, including Caesar, Sallust, and Cicero. By the end of the summer Latin course, students will be thoroughly familiar with Latin idiom and sentence structure and will be able to proceed to reading courses in the language.

Summer Intermediate Latin is a 6-week course (6/20-7/29) that combines extensive reading of texts with a comprehensive review of Classical grammar and syntax; it prepares students for advanced courses in Latin and for the use of Latin texts in the course of their research. Texts studied are taken from a variety of representative and important authors, which may include Cicero, Seneca, Pliny, and others. The backbone of the review sessions is Keller and Russell, Learn to Read Latin, with supplementary exercises in composition. The program meets during both mornings and afternoons for approximately five hours a day. Students are responsible for considerable amounts of class preparation during the evenings, requiring a full-time commitment for the duration of the course. Summer Intermediate Latin equips students to continue with advanced coursework or independent reading in Latin in all its varieties. Summer Intermediate Latin corresponds to a full year's worth of instruction at the University of Chicago.

The University of Chicago has been a leader in the study of ancient languages since the University's founding. UChicago is one of the foremost centers for Cuneiform Studies, and is one of the few universities in the world that teaches Hittite and has numerous specialists in Assyriology. The Department of Classics has long been a central contributor to the field, not least through housing the journal Classical Philology. And the Oriental Institute maintains an extensive collection of artifacts, tablets, and research materials for scholars of the Ancient Near East.

UChicago's Summer Ancient Languages program continues this tradition by bringing together the current generation of scholars and budding scholars of ancient languages and cultures. While studying ancient languages with distinguished UChicago faculty, participants in Summer Ancient Languages will have the opportunity to:

-attend supplementary talks from our faculty on current research in ancient language and culture
-take a guided tour of the Oriental Institute's research resources and collections
-access unique reference tools, such as The Assyrian Dictionary of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago and The Hittite Dictionary of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago
-connect with other scholars and students of ancient languages from around the country and world

Please see our website for detailed descriptions of the Akkadian and Hittite courses.

CUNY Latin/Greek Institute

Basic Latin
Basic Greek
Upper Level Latin

In Summer 2016 the Latin/Greek Institute will once again offer highly intensive ten-week Basic programs in Latin and Greek, which cover more than four semesters of work in a single summer (June 6-August 16, 2016).  The Institute will also offer a seven-week Upper Level program in Latin (June 6-July 26, 2016). All classes are team-taught, and faculty are available by phone around the clock to assist students.

The Institute is a collaborative effort of Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.  Classes meet all day, five days a week at the Graduate Center in midtown Manhattan.

The Upper Level Latin program offers qualified students the opportunity to read a substantial body of literature (200 or more lines per night) at a high level of grammatical precision. The first week is devoted to a systematic review of morphology and syntax; the remaining six weeks are spent in a close reading of selections of the following texts: Suetonius, Caligula; Tacitus, Annales 4-6, 14-16; Lucretius, De Rerum Natura, 1 and 5; Seneca, Thyestes (complete). The course carries 8 undergraduate credits at Brooklyn College.

The first half of Basic Latin and Basic Greek is devoted to intensive study of basic morphology and syntax through textbooks developed specifically for our programs: Moreland and Fleischer's Latin: An Intensive Course and Hansen and Quinn's Greek: An Intensive Course. The second half offers students an unparalleled opportunity to see the rewards of what they have just learned through extensive close reading, at an advanced level, of original texts: in Basic Latin, Cicero's First Catilinarian oration, Vergil's Aeneid Book 4, and selections from Sallust, Horace, Livy, Tacitus, and other authors; in Basic Greek, Plato's dialogue Ion, extensive selections from Euripides' Medea, and selections from a variety of authors including Homer, Solon, Sappho, Lysias, Thucydides, and Isocrates. The Basic courses carry 12 undergraduate credits but are also open to graduate students.

The more than two thousand graduates of the Institute have regularly gone directly into advanced undergraduate courses or even graduate courses.

Thanks to the generosity of graduates and friends of the Institute, scholarships are available to help cover the cost of tuition.  We are grateful for the support of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, through which we offer merit scholarships to graduate students in art history. Please see our website for information about financial aid.
