Sorry, I know that's a bit facetious. But I wonder if you could be more specific? Are you looking to actually learn an ancient language or just to gain credit? Which language are you actually interested in? The eight languages you listed are all rather different, and tend to fall under different specialisms classics, theology, archaeology, oriental studies, etc. For Latin and Greek, most universities will have some courses; for Ugaritic, there are probably only a few institutions in the world that can teach it effectively. If you look on specialist web sites, the relevant universities will probably be very obvious.

Anyway, good luck with learning a new old language!

I'm looking to both learn the language(s) and earn credits. Aug 23, 2011

I want to be able to earn credits so I'll have the incentive to learn. I'm mostly interested in biblical languages, so let's start with Latin, Koine Greek, biblical Hebrew, and maybe Aramaic.
