The Department of Classics has various forms of support for graduate students already in residence. (The next year's funding for incoming graduate students is considered a part of the application process, and no further action is required by applicants.) These opportunities include teaching assistantships, fellowships, occasional research assistantships, positions as graders, and some work-study openings.
Under the supervision of the Latin Program Director, qualified graduate students may teach their own sections in the Basic Latin Program. A graduate student's experience and expertise are important considerations in the assignment of Latin classes. As part of their teacher training, all Latin teaching assistants must enroll in at least one LAT 5XX course each semester they are teaching in the Basic Latin Program.
