Basic Language Program (101-104)

Our Basic Language Program (LAT 101, 102, 103, and 104) introduces students to the Latin language and its history and traditions.

Each course in the sequence is a 4-credit hour course that meets one hour a day, four days a week. Students in our courses learn to read, write, and translate Latin.

The BLP is made up of a four course sequence. Not all courses are taught every semester.
