The Latin major is offered by the classics program of the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures.

The minimum requirements for a major in Latin are 32 credits in Latin, excluding LATN 401-402. A Latin major must complete at least one 700-level course in the Latin language. A minimum of three courses must be taken at the Durham campus. The Discovery Program capstone requirement may be fulfilled by completing any Latin course at the 700 level or through another option (Honors thesis, etc.) approved by the adviser.

Candidates for a degree must satisfy all of the University Discovery Program requirements in addition to satisfying the requirements of each individual major program. Bachelor of arts candidates must also satisfy the foreign language proficiency requirement.

Latin majors may take LATN 503 or 504 to satisfy both the World Culture Discovery Program requirement and to satisfy major requirements.

Students who intend to pursue certification in the teaching of Latin at the middle- and high-school levels should consult with their adviser and plan an appropriate curriculum.

A Latin minor requires 20 credits of coursework in Latin. Students are encouraged to take courses in related fields such as Greek, classics, and ancient history, and to take part in overseas study programs in Italy.
