Put culture in context. Latin and the history of Rome provide key insights into Western civilization, give you a head start on mastering Romance languages, and deepen your understanding of English. A rich foundation in Latin will prove indispensable for any in-depth study in politics, religion, philosophy, or literature—with an analytical training that will give you an edge for any profession you choose. Latin is offered as both a major and minor.
