Essential Information

The Program is open to students enrolled as undergraduates or graduate students at Rutgers. They are advised to contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.

Students are welcome to take our non-language courses to broaden their background in the field, though these may not aid in preparing for the comprehensive exam and are not counted toward the coursework minimum.

The Post-Baccalaureate program does not have any teaching component, and the Certificate earned does not qualify for NJ teacher certification (beyond helping to fulfill the credit requirement for Latin certification and providing preparation for the Latin test).

There is no funding available to defray the costs of earning a Certificate. However, as a public university, our costs are very competitive, particularly for in-state residents.
