University of Vermont

Intensive Greek
Intensive Latin
Upper level Greek and Latin tutorials

Intensives meet for 8-week, 4 x a week, 3 hours per day. They are run by graduate students, with supplementary visits / readings with professor(s). Cost is low—$2,000.00 for the whole course—because the course runs "unofficially", that is, not through the University itself but by direct tutorial arrangement with the Department. Credit at home institution would therefore have to come via credit-by-exam or other such arrangement. But most students do not need credit in any case: rather, they desire sufficient knowledge to enter an intermediate Greek or Latin class in the fall. Students are responsible for finding their own local housing (typically a summer sublet). Upper-level reading tutorials are also available.

Calder Classics offers high school and college students interdisciplinary Greek and Latin language programs abroad in the spring and summer. Through an interaction with local art and architecture, all our students deepen their understanding of ancient and modern literature and culture, and develop a lifelong appreciation of the Classics. Our approach to teaching includes an investigation into how and why the Classics have endured and woven themselves so deeply into our modern lives. We explore the original stories from multiple angles, along with later adaptations and interpretations, some direct and others divergent. During the last 8 years students have joined us from over 95 public and private high schools in North America, South America and Asia and have gone on to attend 57 top colleges and universities. Our 2020 calendar includes the repeat of two highly successful new programs from 2019: SPRING BREAK in Rome, and a new upper level course for Greek and Lat!


In students in TUSCANY. We also offer the following annual Summer Programs: Advanced Reading Latin courses in Florence and Rome as well as a Classics-inspired Creative Writing Workshop and Introduction to Ancient Greek in Florence.

Summer School in Homer 2019, UCL
Monday 22nd July to Friday 26th July 2019

The Summer School offers five days of intensive teaching of Homeric language and literature. There will be four language classes each day as well as lectures, between 10.30 and 16.30. The course is not residential.

Teaching will be generally in groups of 15-20 people which, as far as possible, comprise students of roughly the same level of experience (beginners, intermediate or advanced). The style of teaching is friendly, but demanding: a lot of work is expected from students during the School, but they should find the whole experience both stimulating and valuable. Some classes concentrate chiefly on reading texts, while others offer a mixture of grammar and translation practice. Our tutors include some of the most experienced and talented teachers of Classics in the London area and beyond.
