Summer Institute in Classical Languages
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.
Applications are accepted up to the day of the first class meeting. You can apply online or call Admissions at (972) 721-5266, or the Classics Department at (972) 721-4108.
For undergraduates and special students is $350 per credit hour or $1,050 per 3-credit
course. Graduate students and teachers may apply their tuition scholarships to these
courses. For information about the costs of these courses after the scholarships have
been applied, please contact the Classics Department at (972) 721-4108.
2013 First Summer Session (June 10-July 12)
GREEK 1301. Elementary Classical Greek I (Dr. Stacie Kadleck). 3 credits
The first half of introductory Greek grammar and syntax. This course is a comprehensive
introduction to the language of ancient Greece, particularly that of the 5th and 4th
century Athenians. This course is the very best way to obtain a reading knowledge
of ancient Greek literature in the shortest time possible. No prior experience with
Greek (or any other language save English) is needed.
CLL 1301/1302 Elementary Latin I & II (Dr. Teresa Danze). 6 credits
MTWRF 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
A course in Latin grammar and syntax, at the end of which good students are ready
to read unadapted Latin prose. Note that, since in just five weeks the course covers
material that during the regular academic years needs two semesters, it is so really
intensive that students are strongly advised not to be taking other courses at the
LATIN 3328/5301. Latin Reading (Dr. Sweet). 3 credits
MTWT 2:00-4:00 PM
An upper level Latin course for high school teachers, advanced undergraduates and
graduate students. The course will read selections from a variety of Latin prose authors,
primarily Caesar, but also Cicero, Livy, and others. Which ones will depend upon the
expressed interest of potential participants. Please call Kimberly Read at 972-721-4108
Advanced Placement Summer Institute for Latin Teachers.
During the week of July 8-12 an AP Institute in Latin Literature will be held daily
