Notre Dame's summer language courses are for motivated undergraduates and graduate students. Our courses give students the opportunity to study the ancient languages necessary to understanding Greek and Roman, Judaic, Early Christian, Medieval and Byzantine civilizations. Students may study a language while taking additional courses in history or theology.

Our campus is comfortable and serene during the summer. On-campus housing and food service are convenient, readily available, and comparatively inexpensive. In addition, Notre Dame’s Library has special strengths in Biblical Studies, Early Christian Literature, Medieval Studies, and Byzantine Studies.

Calder Classics

Reading Latin
Introduction to Latin
Intermediate Latin
Introduction to Ancient Greek
Creative Writing

For summer 2021 Calder Classics has added a full suite of online courses. Programs are offered to high school students seeking to improve their Latin, Ancient Greek, and/or Classics-inspired creative writing. Through an interdisciplinary approach including art, architecture, history, and mythology 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 10 years students have joined us from over 125 public and private high schools in North America, South America and Asia and have gone on to attend 65 top colleges and universities. We expect to return to Italy in the spring and summer of 2022.
