Subject: One-Year Diploma in Latin or Greek, University College Cork


University College Cork, Ireland

The Department of Classics is offering, in conjunction with its
intensive 8-week Summer School in Latin and Greek, the chance for
students to acquire Ancient Greek or Latin from scratch to the level
of a Bachelor's degree in just one year.

The course is aimed primarily at postgraduate students in diverse
disciplines who need to acquire knowledge of either of the languages
for further study and research, and at teachers whose schools would
like to reintroduce Latin and Greek into their curriculum.

The course starts in July and consists of two parts. Part A requires
completion of the Summer School programme (25 ECTS credits). Part B
consists of a total of 9 second and third year courses worth a total
of 50 ECTS credits which would be completed over the Autumn and Winter
semesters here in Cork. The courses cover a variety of authors as well
as a more detailed examination of grammar. One course running over
both semesters is devoted to reading tailored to each student's need.

The one-year Diploma course should be of particular interest to school
boards wishing to introduce these subjects into (or maintain them as
part of) their curriculum. In the context of the current shortage of
Latin teachers in the USA in particular, this Diploma course presents
a unique opportunity for schools to have a number of Classical
languages teachers trained in just one year. It is planned to add a
module in teaching method to the courses in 2005/6.

Further enquiries about the Diploma programme should be directed to:

The Summer School has just been awarded:
The European Label for Innovative Language Teaching and Learning 2003
