To have a thorough appreciation of world history, culture, and commerce, you must understand the impact respective languages have on those who speak them and those who don't. All the way since the 5th century BC, Latin has been the language most widely used throughout the world's history; its tremendous influence on English and other European languages make this course engaging and useful for any major.
If you're interested in humanities, law, medicine, and other sciences, our one-year Latin course sequence program will be a tremendous asset to your studies, professional development, and appreciation for world cultures in general. Learning Latin roots will help you explore the impact of this language in our modern world and look beyond regular terms in your other classes.
Professor Georgiana Donavin is our Latin mentor. She meticulously guides students through first-year Latin, teaching them not only another language, but also its importance on modern culture.
