LATN 102 - Elementary College Latin 2

3 Credit(s)

This course will build upon the bases of the Latin language learned in Latin 101 and introduce further grammatical constructions such as indirect statements and questions, the passive voice, relative pronouns, the subjunctive and other syntactical constructions necessary for developing a reading knowledge of Latin. The cultural content will focus on Britain and Alexandria during the first century A.D. during the Pax Romana. Students will examine, through readings with a rural Romano-British background and a cosmopolitan Alexandrian setting, the various provincial aspects of Roman life of both the conquered and the conquerors in various social and economic positions. Relevant study of some archeology, epigraphy, and historical events from this time period will be incorporated, as well as other influences of the Romans and the Latin language upon our cultural heritage. Spring.

Prerequisite(s): LATN 101 .
