Austin Peay State University Post-Baccalaureate Certificate

Austin Peay State University is pleased to invite applications for its Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Classics.  APSU has rolling admissions; we will consider your application whenever you submit it. 


Austin Peay State University is deeply committed to student success and has been nationally recognized for its work in this area.  Classics is very much a part of that success.  We devote a great deal of individual attention to our students both in language and cultural study, and in advising.  We are driven to see that our students find appropriate opportunities to pursue their goals. 

Students from APSU are currently in PhD programs at such schools as University of Virginia, Duke, The Academy of Art University in San Francisco, and the University of Arizona.  One of our Latin students will be pursuing graduate work at Cambridge in Anglo-Saxon next fall.  Many of our majors are successfully teaching secondary school Latin.


Tennessee's only post-bac program in Classics offers students the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of Greek and Latin through the completion of six courses distributed according to the needs of the individual student. Our goal is flexibility.

Students will complete two survey courses, at least one course in prose composition, and the remaining courses in individual author/genre courses. 

Opportunities exist to audit and/or assist in teaching lower level language courses and/or civilization courses.  Undergraduate coursework in French, German, Spanish, and Modern Greek is also available.  Opportunities exist to study abroad as well.


In addition to formal language study, APSU can provide students with editing experience.  We are the home to Philomathes: A Journal of Undergraduate Research in Classics, and we will provide you editing privileges for that journal. 

If secondary teaching is your goal, we stand ready to help there as well.  APSU is very active in the area high-schools most of which offer full programs in Latin.  We offer you multiple opportunities to engage with secondary school programs in our area.

Application process:

Prospective students must hold a bachelor's degree and have completed a minimum of one year of language study.
