Skills You will Gain

1. Proficiency in Classical Languages – This includes written and spoken proficiency. Steeped in the mother tongues of Greek and Roman civilization, with a firm foundation in reading and comprehension, you’ll gain knowledge of both sacred and secular writings by encountering many of the greatest literary works from the last two millennia.

2. Analytical Linguistics – Change the way you think about language by diving deep into the rigid structure and logic of the Roman tongue or the complex beauty of the language of ancient Greece. As you study, you’ll not only discover the rich treasures of Greek and Latin, you’ll also come to a more complete understanding of languages in general, even your vernacular English.

3. Problem Solving – Classical languages can be puzzling to decipher, especially when it comes to poetry and hymns. This minor gives you the tools to overcome these challenges and unravel the meaning of some of the most challenging texts, in unsimplified form, from the Greco-Roman world.
