LATIN - This program is suspended for the 2010-2011 academic year.

College of Arts and Letters


The program in Latin is designed for students of history, literature, philosophy, or religion who need to become familiar with Latin literature and Roman culture. Specifically, students of ancient or medieval history who need to use original source material, students of English or Romance languages who want to see the roots of their own language or area of specialization, or students of medieval philosophy and church history will need knowledge of Latin in order to pursue their studies.

Students who wish to continue the study of Latin in a graduate program should take a minor, which requires two upper division courses, and which provides a foundation for advanced studies at other universities or in graduate school.

Requirements - Minor

Units required for the Minor: 12, with at least 6 being upper division. Courses must be approved by an advisor in Latin. Transfer students must complete at least one 3-unit upper division Latin course at Sacramento State.
