Where Can I Study Classics in Texas?

This page contains resources for people interested in studying Classics in Texas and beyond. It is not designed to be comprehensive but rather to provide a broad picture of which institutions offer at least some courses in Classics – whether in Latin, Ancient Greek, Ancient History, Archaeology, Philosophy, or another aspect of classical culture.

UT Austin offers a variety of Classics courses in the summer, which (unlike courses in the regular academic year) are also open to students from other institutions. Instructions for students seeking transient admission can be found here. Summer courses feature introductions to the classical world as well as elementary classes in both languages, including a very successful Summer Intensive Greek program for beginners. For those who prefer to learn online, a self-paced Latin sequence is available through University Extension; the courses can be taken at any time and do not require admission to the university.
