Following the successful completion of First-Year Latin (LAT 506 and 507, or equivalent), students enrolled in this online intermediate Latin course will apply their foundational understanding of Latin vocabulary, grammar, syntax and translation to readings of authentic Latin prose (Julius Caesar’s commentaries on the Gallic War) and poetry (Vergil’s Aeneid). This course focuses on developing students’ language skills as well as advancing competencies in translation, composition and literary, rhetorical and historical analysis. In Vergil’s Aeneid, students will also learn to scan and analyze dactylic hexameter, the distinctive poetic meter employed in Latin epic poetry.
