Latin is available as a Joint Concentration with a focus on Latin as a language, and options for additional work in Ancient Greek or in classical civilizations.
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.
Elementary Latin ILANG 2010
Knowledge of Latin is essential for reading the literature of classical, medieval, and early modern Europe. Latin may also be useful for historians, art historians, archaeologists, philosophers, and students of religion or theater. Immersion in the elegance and simplicity of Latin encourages the development of the student’s English prose style and general clarity of thought. This course rapidly covers the first half of Wheelock’s Latin Grammar and is a prerequisite for Elementary Latin II. Elementary Latin I has no prerequisites and is intended for beginners or those with high school Latin preparation inadequate for advanced work.Latin Curriculum
