Overview

The Latin major at Baylor University focuses on original Latin texts and their cultural impact. Upon graduation, Latin majors are able to read and write in Latin. The coursework includes discussions on philosophy, history and religion. 

Graduates often use their degree as a precursor to graduate studies, law school or seminary. Some have also gone on to teach Latin at various education levels. Latin is also offered as a minor or secondary major for students majoring in a different area of study.

The Classics Department offers several special programs for students. As part of the Manuscript Research Collegium, students have the rare opportunity to work first hand with ancient Greek and Latin papyri and medieval manuscripts.
