Students in this course will learn the basics of the language essential to all studies in the liberal arts, Latin. From the age of Julius Caesar until the early 20th century Latin language and literature were required of all western students, and they continue to represent the foundation of learning and erudition. The object of the course is for the student to learn the fundamentals of Latin, its grammar and syntax, in order to read Latin poetry and prose, some of the most eloquent expressions of the human condition.

Students in CL105: Elementary Latin will demonstrate the ability to

  • to learn introductory Latin grammar, syntax, and vocabulary, and to demonstrate such knowledge both orally and in written form
  • to read a limited number of passages of Latin literature - both prose and poetry - critically and with precision
  • to participate in group projects that showcase their ability with Latin
Si hanc paginam legere potes, operis boni in rebus latinis alacribus et fructuosis potiri potes.
