Frequently Asked Questions

Will master’s students be required to attend the live classes (in-person or online)?

Because the master’s program is based on discussion of great books, regular attendance (either in-person or online) at live classes is required. Accommodations can be made for occasional absences.

Will there be a class recording?

Recordings will be available weekly to enrolled students and may be used for future instruction and promotion

Am I eligible for the master’s program if I do not have a bachelor’s degree?

You must complete your bachelor’s degree in order to gain a master’s degree. Since Memoria College is not an undergraduate institution, you must first complete your bachelor’s degree at an undergraduate institution before you apply.

Students without a bachelor’s degree may be able to audit courses without credit.

Through what institution will credits be offered?

Memoria College is currently seeking licensure as a degree-granting institution from the Council on Postsecondary Education. Until licensed, these courses can be taken for credit but Memoria College cannot issue a degree. Courses taken prior to licensure will count towards the degree.

Are credits from the Memoria College master’s program transferable to other institutions?

It is unlikely. There is no universal system for transferring credit between graduate schools. Institutions rarely accept transfer credit unless they have a closely-matching course and determine that the material was covered in a similar way. Based on the unique nature of our program, only a few graduate programs are likely to have similar courses.

Memoria College summer courses are available to the general public and can count as credit for students who are accepted to the Memoria College Master of Arts in Classics program.

Will the master’s program satisfy state teacher certification requirements?

No. The master’s program is designed to provide a broad liberal education through interaction with the great texts. It is not a master’s in teaching degree which is typically focused on the process of teaching with a student teaching component.

In some states these courses will satisfy the requirements for continuing education.

What computer technology will online students be using for the classes?

The courses can be accessed through Zoom technology. A Zoom room link is provided to students before classes begin.
