This class provides an introduction to classical Latin, the language of the Roman Republic and Empire, as represented by authors including Cicero, Horace, Virgil, and Tacitus. It also prepares students to read Medieval, Renaissance, or Ecclesiastical Latin texts. Knowledge of Latin improves one's grasp of the vocabulary and grammar of Spanish, French, and Italian, as well as English, especially the specialized vocabularies of law, medicine, and natural science. At the completion of the two sessions (Latin: An Intensive Introduction I and II), students should enjoy a solid grounding in basic vocabulary, forms, and syntax and begin to read primary texts in the original Latin.

Our work will be conducted remotely, using Canvas and Zoom. The faculty will offer alternative assignments if conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings, which will allow students to earn comparable credit.

Students seeking the full intensive summer introduction to Latin should separately for the first and second session course: 4 credits inand 4 credits in. Students with prior learning who feel qualified to begin with thecourse in the second session should contact the instructor.Latin: an Intensive Introduction ILatin: an Intensive Introduction IIIntroduction II
