Course Descriptions—Literature and Fine Arts
LAT 201 Intermediate Latin
These courses are intended to satisfy the needs of two classes of students: (1) those with previous preparation in Latin (usually two years or more in high school) whose performance on the Placement Test shows that they need only a semester’s work to reach the Basic Proficiency level; (2) students who have completed Latin 101, 102 and desire to continue their study of the language. The emphasis will be on developing facility in reading Latin. Since there is a great deal of Latin Prose Composition in Latin 201, it also may be counted as a course in the Language Studies area. Latin 201 will read selections from classical poetry and prose; Latin 202 will read selections from Vergil’s Aeneid. IF A STUDENT WHO PLACES INTO LATIN 201 COMPLETES THE COURSE WITH A GRADE OF B- OR BETTER, HE WILL RECEIVE AN ADDITIONAL COURSE CREDIT IN LATIN; THIS COURSE CREDIT DOES NOT COUNT TOWARDS THE MAJOR OR MINOR.
