Joint Concentration

About the Latin Joint Area of Concentration

Latin is a joint concentration that consists of six courses or activities. Four must be in the Latin language. The remaining two can also be in the Latin language, or they can be in classical civilization or Greek language. Students have found the study of Latin pleasurable in itself, but also good training for other intellectual pursuits, from scientific terminology to a stronger understanding of grammatical structures.
