Creative Writing

For summer 2020 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, mythology, and cuisine, 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 9 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. We expect to return to Italy in the spring and summer of 2021.

Summer Session 10-week, June 8- August 12, 2020
Intensive Elementary Greek (Greek 112) will be offered in a fully online format, asynchronous format.  Students will have a great deal of flexibility when it comes to completing the work, but should expect to spend between 250-300 hours over the course of the 10 week period.   Those who successfully complete the course will be prepared to enroll in intermediate Greek.  No prior knowledge of Greek is necessary to enroll in Greek 112.

Some Scholarships are available to support UA students taking Greek 112, if they will continue on to Greek 201 in the fall.   For more information, click here.

University of Notre Dame

The University of Notre Dame Classical, Medieval and Near Eastern Institute offers a variety of summer courses for motivated undergraduates and graduate students. Courses range from 3-8 weeks, covering one to two semesters of material, and may be taken concurrently with courses in history or theology. Whether learning Syriac, Greek (Classical or Byzantine) or Latin (Classical or Medieval) for the first time or solidifying their command of grammar and syntax, students will emerge with a stronger grasp of the languages necessary to understanding Greek and Roman, Judaic, Early Christian, Medieval and Byzantine civilizations.

Summer 2020 offerings include:

Beginning Syriac
Beginning Greek I and II
Patristic and Byzantine Greek
Beginning Latin I and II
Intermediate Latin
Medieval Latin
Latin Diplomatics

Tuition for the program is $1,185 per credit hour for undergraduates and $930 per credit hour for graduate students. Financial aid may be available. Notre Dame offers convenient and inexpensive on-campus housing and food service.

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.
