This is the first version of the 2021-22 General Catalog. The final edition and the historical PDF will be published during the fall semester.

The undergraduate minor in Latin requires a minimum of 15 s.h., including at least 12 s.h. in advanced courses taken at the University of Iowa. Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in all courses for the minor and in all UI courses for the minor. Coursework in the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass.

Students may count one relevant classics department course taught in English (prefix CLSA) toward the minor. A maximum of 6 s.h. of work for another University of Iowa major, minor, or certificate and up to 3 s.h. of lower-level transfer credit may be counted toward the minor.

The sequence CLSL:2001 World of Cicero and CLSL:2002 Golden Age of Roman Poetry, and Department of Classics courses numbered 3000 or above are considered advanced for the minor. Students may satisfy the advanced courses requirement for the minor by completing CLSL:2001 World of Cicero and CLSL:2002 Golden Age of Roman Poetry plus two courses numbered 3000 or above, one of which may be a relevant course in Roman history, culture, or literature (prefix CLSA). For a list of relevant courses, contact the undergraduate advisor. Students who have taken high school Latin should consult the advisor.
