The Latin/Greek Institute, founded in 1973, offers intensive, total-immersion programs in ancient languages that enable serious, highly motivated undergraduate and graduate students to cover the material normally included in several semesters of conventional work in a single summer. All programs are team-taught by experienced instructors. Hourly rotation of staff provides for exposure to a variety of approaches, and there is a low student-faculty ratio. The institute is unique in that the faculty is available 24 hours a day to assist students by phone, text or e-mail in preparing their assignments.
No auditors are permitted in the programs of the Latin/Greek Institute. Admission is by application only.
The institute is held at the Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue, in Manhattan. The center is easily accessible by all major means of public transportation.
Samuel H. Kress Foundation
The Samuel H. Kress Foundation supports a series of competitive fellowships to the Latin/Greek Institute to exceptional art history students at Ph.D.–granting colleges and universities. Preference will be given to recently accepted graduate students with a proposed focus on the history of European art. Interested students should apply to the institute and indicate their interest in being considered for a Kress Foundation fellowship.
