What’s special about this program?


The Latin Education major is designed to prepare students for both real-world teaching opportunities and future development of literary, historical and educational skills. In this program, students will gain a keen knowledge of Latin vocabulary, grammar and pedagogy while reading exciting ancient texts in the original language. Students will supplement this learning with selections from a range of in-translation courses across several programs that explore the ancient world. Students are encouraged to pursue topics of ancient Roman history, culture, and literature that are of particular interest to them. A series of field experiences prepares students for successful student teaching. And one-on-one mentoring of student teachers by a UD Field Instructor and classroom clinical educator ensure success in teaching.
