Latin Studies Certificate


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Program Type

The Latin Studies certificate curriculum, consisting of a sequence of four courses in Latin language and literature, aims at two groups of students in particular. First, it is aimed at graduate students who need strong Latin skills for any academic discipline in which Latin is important, including not only classics, but also history, philosophy, theology, etc., and who are already engaged in, or hope to undertake advanced study in one or more of these fields. The certificate curriculum will offer to such students an interdisciplinary opportunity to gain a superior command of Latin in a highly concentrated format, but in a relatively brief period of time. Second, it is aimed at the training of new Latin teachers for the high school level and even pre-high school instruction. The Latin studies certificate curriculum will be highly useful for those interested in teaching Latin, because it will provide a much deeper immersion in Latin language and literature than what has so far been usual for students seeking careers as Latin teachers, and will ensure that all who complete it acquire not merely reading skills, but also considerable active command of the language.
