SUMMER LANGUAGE STUDY

Many students prefer to take their introductory year of Latin or Greek over the summer, which allows them to jump right into the intermediate level classes - classes which typically focus on the literature of a single author - when they return in the fall. Summer intensive language programs in Greek or Latin are offered by a number of institutions nationwide, so it is usually easy to find a program close to home, or in a city where Wesleyan students often choose to find summer work. Most are 6-8 week programs, which leaves the remainder of the summer to be devoted to other activities or internships. 

Need help with summer tuition? Through small grants from the Squire Fund, the Wesleyan Classics department will offset tuition costs for any student who completes an approved summer intensive Greek or Latin program.
