Advanced Topics in Latin Language and Culture VI
Advanced Topics in Latin continues the study of Latin through reading selections of authentic, unadapted classical Latin prose and poetry from authors whose use of Latin is more rigorous and challenging. Building on their successes in their previous Latin courses students will continue to develop their fluency skills in reading and comprehending Latin prose and poetry from a variety of authors. At the same time, students will learn the political, economic, social, intellectual, cultural, and religious aspects of classical antiquity. Students will also have the opportunity to compare the Latin selections to literature from other cultures, in addition to reading contemporary scholarship.
