General Catalog:

Focus on reading Latin and on Roman culture.

Description:

An introduction to the Latin language.  Romans dominated the Mediterranean world for more than a millennium and left a monumental political, religious and literary legacy that is the foundation for western culture.  it is through their language that we can most directly approach the Romans and begin to understand their complexity. 

Using Wheelock’s Latin (Chapters 1-20), students learn the fundamentals (forms, syntax, and vocabulary) while reading excerpts from ancient Roman authors like Ovid, Catullus, Cicero and Livy, and while studying the historical and cultural context in which these authors wrote.  Grades are based on daily assignments, weekly quizzes, and four exams. While the emphasis is on translating from Latin to English, some composition from English to Latin also is required. An attendance requirement permits seven absences before grade is lowered. The course is taught by qualified graduate students supervised by Professor Marcia Lindgren, who has written on the Roman poet Catullus and on various issues of Latin pedagogy.
