Latin

Open doors to all language

A Latin minor is perfect for students who want to read great authors like Cicero, Julius Caesar and Virgil in the original Latin. Gain a deeper understanding of the language and develop a fuller context for the literature and culture of the classical period. Latin is the root of many romance languages and will help you in your study of many other languages. It is also helpful for the technical vocabularies needed in medicine and law.
