Learn a classical language amidst a community of scholars.
Often the question isn't “Why should I study a classical language?” but “When can
I find the time?” Since 1976 the University of Dallas Summer Program has provided
the opportunity to study Greek and Latin outside the limits of the regular academic
year. Our summer learners include undergraduate and graduate students from our own
and other institutions; high school teachers seeking accreditation, review, or deepening
of knowledge; and a number of people who simply want to be able to study good books
in the original language. High school students who have completed the junior year
and will be 16 years old by July 1st are also encouraged to apply.
