Why the Rutgers Post-Baccalaureate Program?

We offer an attractive and competitive per-credit cost (even at the rate for out-of-state students). For current and projected tuition costs, see pdf here .

Students need take only as many courses as are required to meet our already-low coursework minimum and for successful performance in the comprehensive exam.

Students can pace their courses as their outside commitments and budgets allow: there is no minimum credit requirement in any given semester and no time limits on the acquisition of the Certificate.

Beyond two required courses at the advanced level, students can take any number and type of our language offerings in preparation for successful performance in the exam.

The Department offers as many courses as is practical in the evening, enabling working professionals to enroll.
There are no pre-requisites for enrollment, and experience in ancient languages and Classics is neither required nor expected. Assessment of newcomers to Classics will necessarily rely on such indicators as their experience with modern languages and/or the sophistication of their written English, as well as letters of recommendation. Students will ordinarily have a Bachelor’s degree or experience in taking college-level courses.

The academic and professional-development resources of the Department are fully available to Post-Baccalaureate students, such as advising and references for applications to MA and PhD programs and teaching positions.

Students are fully welcome at all departmental events, including lectures and special programs.
