2. Classics or Classical Civilization Majors may apply in their senior year to the College of Education's M.A. program or their post-baccalaureate program for secondary teaching to pursue Latin licensure. If the student has not satisfied all the requirements in No. 1, above, through undergraduate coursework, he/she may need to take additional Latin courses.
3. Classics or Classical Civilization Majors may apply to do a Dual Degree with the College of Education. The student will pursue a Classics or Classical Civilization Major in the College of Arts and Sciences and a Secondary Education Major with Latin Licensure concentration in the College of Education. Students will follow the curriculum in No. 1, above, and take additional courses to fulfill all the requirements of the Classics or Classical Civilization major, A&S core requirements, Secondary Education Major requirements, College of Education requirements, and University of Cincinnati General Education requirements. The student will graduate with two degrees. This choice will result in the need for more than four years of study.
The decision to pursue a Dual Degree should be made early in the student's career so that College of Education cohort and teaching requirements can be met on time.
- Students interested in the Latin Licensure should contact Francoise Bachelder (CECH- Teacher Education, Teachers 615H) to receive additional advising material and instructions.
