BS in Latin & Classical Studies

Please note: This program is on a moratorium for the 2014–2015 academic year. We are not accepting new students into the program at this time.

The undergraduate program in Latin & Classical Studies prepares teachers of Latin in grades 5–12. The program reflects current theory and practice in teaching Latin. Students complete a strong liberal arts background, including the equivalent of a major in Latin & Classical Studies.

In the professional education courses students develop effective communication skills, the ability to acquire and use knowledge from a variety of media and technologies, and leadership ability in curriculum development and instruction. There is close coordination of classwork in education, field experiences, and study of pedagogy. Student-teaching provides first-hand experience with various roles and responsibilities of schools and school personnel, and allows students to put their knowledge into practice and refine their skills. The Latin and Classics courses emphasize communication as well as grammar, culture, and literature.
