LAT 101: Latin I.

Students take their first steps towards mastery of Latin language, learning morphology and syntax and acquiring vocabulary using Learn to Read Latin (2ed) by Andrew Keller and Stephanie Russell.

LAT 286/388: The Age of Nero.

Students read selections from literary works composed during the reign of the emperor Nero, focusing in this instance on the works of Seneca and Lucan. We pay close attention to the language and syntax, as well as the socio-historical context of these works. This course includes a writing component at the 300-level.
