Interested in learning Greek?
Class of 2016

Each summer the Department of Classics offers its renowned course in Summer Intensive Greek: three semesters of Greek in 10 weeks. For more information please visit our webpage: The picture above is from our most recent class of Summer Greek students and teachers!


Praise from program alumni:

"The fastest way to go from zero to sixty in Ancient Greek. I've never had as much fun in a course as I did in that one and never understood a foreign or ancient language so well." – Will Bibee, PhD candidate in Middle Eastern Studies (Class of 2003)

"The best intellectual experience of my life to date." – Dhananjay Jagannathan, PhD candidate in Philosophy (Class of 2007)

"Summer Greek offered a cohort experience like no other. Fellow students, TAs, and faculty were endlessly supportive. Lexis is one of the most impressive textbooks I've ever worked with.... This is really how serious students ought to learn foreign languages." – Patricia Monticello Kievlan, educator and professional instructional designer (Class of 2003)

"One of the best investments of time I have ever made." – Jack Tannous, PhD in History (Class of 2002)

"Gave me the chance to refine my goals as an undergraduate, to know myself better, and develop a skill that I'll utilize for a lifetime. It is still one of the best educational experiences of my life." – Daniel Kievlan, MD (Class of 2003)

"I just wanted to follow up on my comments the other day regarding the intensive summer Greek program. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to participate. The rigorous nature of the program and your instruction taught me discipline and time-management. I went on to get a 4.0 while earning my Master's in Philosophy, and managed to keep a full scholarship through my three years in law school. My law school, Wayne State, had the toughest curve in the state of Michigan, and each semester I watched bright, talented classmates lose their scholarships. Your high expectations and excellent instruction helped me to become a better student, and probably saved me around $100,000.00." Judith Bohr, Attorney at Law
