Minor in Latin

Catalog Year: 2024-2025


This minor offers students the opportunity to develop and refine their knowledge of the Latin language by reading classical Latin literature. Students gain an understanding and appreciation of the literature, culture, and intellectual achievements of Roman antiquity that have contributed to the development of Western civilization.

A Latin minor complements majors in literature, language, history, philosophy, and the arts, all of which find their roots in classical antiquity. Majors in the natural and the social sciences are also strengthened by the historical perspective and the advanced training in language and terminology afforded by the minor in Latin.
