The Graduate Group in Classical Studies trains students in the languages, literatures, and history of the Greek and Roman Classical world. Students are encouraged to combine this work with the investigation of such related fields as Art History and Archaeology, Comparative Literature and Literary Theory, Linguistics, Medieval Studies, Philosophy, Religious Studies, and Women's Studies.

Candidates for the Ph. D. usually take four classes each semester in the first year, and three in the second and third years, when they are also teaching undergraduate classes. The core of our graduate training is the two graduate seminars in Greek and Latin, taught by the faculty in the department each semester.

There are six required classes:

The Classical Studies Proseminar, to be taken in the first semester

  • The Classical Studies Prospectus Workshop, to be taken in the spring of the third year
  • The Greek Text: Language and Style (Greek 540)
  • The Latin Text: Language and Style (Latin 540)
  • Greek Literary History (Greek 541)
  • Latin Literary History (Latin 541)

Greek 540 and Latin 540 address the question, What do we need to read texts in Greek/Latin? In these courses we read just one prose text and one poetic text, or a very limited number of texts and passages, with a focus on language and formal analysis (such as diction, grammar, stylistics, metrics, rhetoric, textual criticism). A range of exercises will be used to develop this, including composition, lexical studies, recitation, memorization, exegesis, written close-readings, and sight-translation.

It is expected that students will read widely and carefully in Greek and Latin literature throughout their time in graduate school, outside the readings assigned in their courses. Those who arrive with any deficiencies in language preparation or gaps in reading are expected to fill in those gaps as efficiently and promptly as possible, drawing on the advice and mentorship of faculty members as appropriate. Course work alone is not enough; students should be in the habit of using their free time to read Greek and Latin texts and improve language skills in Greek, Latin and relevant modern languages. The Reading Lists for the Preliminary Examinations (see below) give an indication of the range of reading we expect from students after their first or second year, but they are by no means exhaustive.

Entering students are normally expected to have an undergraduate major in Classics or a related discipline and substantial training in both Greek and Latin.

A strong command of the English language is necessary for successful study at Penn. Applicants whose families do not speak English at home, or applicants who have not attended a high school or secondary school where the primary language of instruction is English, are asked to take the TOEFL, the Test of English as a Foreign Language, administered by the Educational Testing Service. In the event the TOEFL is not readily accessible, Penn will accept results from the IELTS, the International English Language Testing System.
