Latin (BA)

A major in Latin provides students with a well-rounded knowledge of Latin language, as well as ancient Roman culture and traditions. Students will become proficient at reading different genres of Latin literature in the original; they will also add electives in Latin, Greek, or Classical Civilization to fill out their degree. Students will finish their senior year with a capstone sequence and the creation of a portfolio that demonstrates the wide range of their learning over the course of their study. Classical Studies students learn to apply their learning in cross-disciplinary, integrative ways that enable them to capitalize on multidimensional understanding of whole cultures. Majors in Latin will find themselves prepared for pre-law or pre-medical programs, business, and other careers.
