Greek and Latin

The courses in Classical Languages are grouped into Latin and Greek and involve the study of the language and reading of primary authors. Although Latin and ancient Greek are no longer spoken, we encourage students to study language knowing that work with the ancient languages encourages logical thought, provides a sophisticated grasp of the possibilities of language, enhances an understanding of the culture, and gives the student opportunities to study at first hand some of the greatest works of the human spirit.Beginning and Intermediate sequences (101, 102, 151) are offered in both languages each year. Courses beyond the intermediate level are offered according to demand. Half credit courses (235) are offered as complementary reading courses in conjunction with a Classical Humanities course.
