University of Dallas, Summer Institute in Classical Languages

 

Often the question isn't "Why should I study a foreign language?" but "When can I find the time?" Since 1976 the University of Dallas 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, professional development, 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.

 

ADMISSION: Applications are accepted up to the day of the first class meeting. For application forms write: Admissions, University of Dallas, 1845 East Northgate Drive, Irving, TX 75062; or call Admissions at (972) 721-5266, or the Braniff Graduate School at (972) 721-5106; or the Classics Department at (972) 721-4108.
 

2015 TUITION for undergraduates and special students is $440 per credit or $1,320 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 Braniff Graduate Office at (972) 721-5106, or by email at cnolan@udallas.edu.

CLL 1301/1302 Elementary Latin I & II (Mr. Adam Cooper). 6 credit hours 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 year needs two semesters, it is so really 'intensive' that students are strongly advised not to be taking other courses at the same time.
