Applying to the M.Ed. Program

Qualified applicants should have a bachelor's degree with a B average in at least 12 hours of Latin beyond the first year. Required application materials include official transcripts from your B.A.-granting institution, 3 letters of recommendation, and up-to-date GRE or Praxis II (Latin) scores.

Application is made online through the UNCG Graduate School. Applicants must submit all application materials required by the Graduate School by the appropriate deadline to be considered for Fall, Spring, or Summer admission. July 1 is the deadline for admission for the Fall semester, October 1 for Spring, and April 1 for Summer Session. For complete information on application procedures, consult the Graduate School’s Guide to Admissions.

In some cases, applicants may be offered provisional admission, with full admission granted upon successful completion of six hours in Latin language courses at the graduate level (500 or above)

Non-Degree-Seeking Students

Students who wish to take courses in the M.Ed. curriculum for professional or personal enrichment without applying to the program are welcome to do so. In summer, they should enroll through UNCG’s Division of Continual Learning. For courses in the Spring and Fall, they should apply through the Graduate School’s Visions program. Up to nine credit hours of courses taken through Visions or DCL may be applied toward the M.Ed. degree if a student later decides to apply to the program.
