Departmental Membership in the SCS

The Society for Classical Studies (SCS) invites college and university departments offering programs in classical studies to become departmental members.  The Society instituted this category of membership as a way of giving recognition to those departments that are willing to support the entire field while they do the essential work of passing on an understanding of classical antiquity to each new generation of students.  Departmental members will be listed on the Society's web site and on a page in the Annual Meeting Program.  The SCS will issue outstanding achievement awards to students designated by the department.  Departmental members will also be able to obtain certain SCS publications and other benefits at no charge.  Departmental members also support two important international classics projects in which the SCS participates:  the American Office of l'Année philologique and its fellowship to the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae (TLL).  Departmental dues revenue that exceeds the value of benefits received will be used to support these two projects.

GREEKKEYS 2015:  As of November 1, 2015, only departmental members may purchase departmental licenses for GreekKeys 2015, the latest revision of a custom polytonic Greek keyboard program with accompanying fonts that has long been useful to many scholars, teachers, and students of the ancient and medieval Greek worlds.  The new price for this software is $100 for a small departmental license (no more than 9 users) and $200 for an unlimited license.  Supporting and Sustaining departmental members will receive unlimited licenses at no charge. All departmental licenses now include a free extension for distribution to students in the department’s courses under the terms of the extended license that accompanies the software.  

Click here to download a form to purchase Departmental Membership for 2019.  Departments may select a membership category that corresponds to the highest academic degree that each one offers.  However, departments selecting the higher Supporting or Sustaining categories provide additional funds for important Society projects and receive unlimited site licenses for GreekKeys 2015 at no additional charge.  The listings of member departments give appropriate recognition to those selecting the higher levels.  Organizations other than academic departments that support the study of classical antiquity may become departmental members upon approval by the SCS Board of Directors.

Here are some new features of 2019 Membership:

  • The ability to add student and adjunct memberships at-cost (started in late 2018)
  • Our publication "The First Three African American Members of the APA" has been replaced with the recently written and more comprehensive "Twelve African American Members of the Society for Classical Studies: The First Five Decades (1875-1925)
  • Category 5 institutions can elect Ad-Only Placement Service access as a benefit
