The Associate Chair for Graduate Studies (ACGS) advises Classics graduate students and prospective students individually. Current students meet with the ACGS each semester to discuss their progress towards meeting the requirements for their degree.

The ACGS helps them with choosing courses, finding mentors, and answering any questions they may have about the department or their plans for the future.

New graduate students in Classics take a one-semester non-credit proseminar in the fall semester of their first year. The proseminar meets once a week and is organized by the ACGS. Each faculty member who is present that semester holds one session; topics to be covered include various aspects of the field and the profession, as well as particular research skills and career advice.

Please note: if you have taken a given course at the 4000 level as a CU Boulder undergraduate (or while in a dual degree program), the same course cannot be repeated for credit at the 5000 level when you are in a graduate degree program. Please work with the Associate Chair of Graduate Studies if you feel you have a case to make for an exception to this rule.
