Latin, Minor

This is the first version of the 2024–25 General Catalog. Please check back regularly for changes. The final edition and the historical PDF will be published during the fall semester.

A minor in Latin is an excellent way to pursue the study of Latin beyond the General Education World Languages courses and to explore an interest in reading famous authors and philosophers (Ovid, Cicero, and others) in their native language.

Learning Outcomes

Students are expected to demonstrate:

  • the ability to read Latin at an intermediate to advanced level;
  • knowledge of major literary works and written sources from the Roman world; and
  • understanding of the impact that the political, intellectual, and social environments of the people from ancient Rome have on modern cultures.
