Classics - Latin Language




Students involved in the study of pre-modern history will find great value in USU’s Latin Language minor. The program focuses on classical Latin, and students will learn basic grammar and syntax and read selections from the works of Caesar, Ovid, Plautus, and many other Roman authors. This track also includes classes in Roman history and civilization to put the study of language into a broader context.

Career Application

Graduating with this minor prepares students to continue their study in pre-modern history by developing necessary research and critical thinking skills. Employment opportunities will vary depending on the major, but graduates will be well-suited to seek employment in the areas of philosophy, literature, law, or archival work.
