Classical Studies in Latin Minor
A minor is an optional component of a student’s degree that will be reflected on the student’s transcript. Minors are an excellent way for students to customize their learning experience and craft a degree program that is uniquely theirs. Students can even earn multiple minors to supplement a bachelor's degree. For example, students pursuing a degree in interpersonal communication might find that a minor in sociology is an excellent pairing, while a student pursuing a degree in public administration might add a minor in sustainability issues to help create a cleaner, greener future. And in some cases, employers offer bonuses or higher salaries to employees who have a foreign language minor.
A Classical Studies in Latin minor provides students with a broad background and a deeper understanding of one of the civilizations that provides the basis for modern life. Through art and language, philosophy and politics, the culture that the Romans built has transcended their own time. Our politics is based on it. Our movies and plays follow the same formats. Even much of our language is still tied to it. A fundamental understanding of the world as it was, gives the student of today a better framework to create the world as it should be. This minor is particularly complementary to liberal arts degrees like political science and philosophy, but is equally suitable for those who wish to pursue a degree in law, business, or marketing.
A Classical Studies in Latin minor complements a range of majors in both the College of Liberal Arts and elsewhere in the university. Some of these are:
- International Relations
- Human Resources
- Strategic Communication
- Public Administration
