Latin Teaching Assistantships

Graduate Teaching Assistants teach several sections of Latin each year. Under the supervision of the Basic Latin Program Director, each Latin Teaching Assistant is responsible for her/his own section (4 hours per week) of Elementary (i.e. 100 level) or Intermediate (i.e. 200 level) Latin. The Department currently uses Lingua Latina in elementary Latin, and students read selections from Livy's Ab Vrbe Condita (and other prose authors) and Vergil's Aeneid in the third and fourth semesters, respectively. During the semesters in which they are teaching, Latin Teaching Assistants must enroll in a 500 level (graduate) Latin course and participate in weekly pedagogical and curriculum coordination meetings. Graduate students interested in teaching in the Latin Program should contact the Director of the Basic Latin Program.
