The Latin minor, in addition to its unique preparation for graduate studies or law school, prepares students for careers in business, journalism, museum work, and teaching by developing writing and analytical language skills. Students will be able to complement the practical and linguistic skills with literature and art courses that emphasize timeless human experiences and achievements. See our "Why Study Classics" page!
The Latin minor provides a solid linguistic background for further study of the Latin language; it supports literary research in the fields of Comparative Literature, English, and Modern European Languages, as well as in the areas of Late Antique, Early European, Medieval, and Renaissance studies.
