The Society for Classical Studies has a Teacher Training Award.


This is an incomplete list of colleges and universities which provide teacher training across North America. The list below includes contact information, websites, and whether the program has scholarships. If you would like to add or correct any information, please email the webmaster.


You may also wish to consult John D. Muccigrosso's Undergraduate Programs in Classics, but his list does not specifically focus on teacher training programs.


In 2011, the SCS created this list of State Certification Requirements in Latin


Some good advice offered by Helma Dik on the classics list: "Anecdotal evidence suggests, though, that a personal statement that talks about one serious academic enthusiasm works well in admissions anywhere, especially a sufficiently geeky one like Classics. Students who combine such a statement with a campus visit that includes not just admissions, but a conversation with the undergraduate advisor in Classics, and a class visit, are in better shape." There was also talk about general humanities scholarships that might be available at the institution of choice. So do not assume that just because there is no indication of scholarships listed at the colleges below, that none can be found at that institution.
