Coordinator(s)Dr Evangelina Agnostou-Laoutides


This unit provides CLA Honours students with the opportunity to continue their study of Latin. The unit is based on the CLA undergraduate Introductory Latin units, CLA1120/CLA2120/CLA3120, and aims to develop the student's language capability to the point that s/he is able to read unadapted texts with significant help in grammar and vocabulary. It is designed to give students a sufficiently comprehensive introduction to Latin that they can continue further study to Intermediate and Advanced levels at post-graduate level.


By the completion of this unit, it is expected that students:

  • will have a solid understanding of basic Latin grammar and syntax
  • will have a developing store of Latin Greek vocabulary
  • will be able to read adapted texts from Latin authors with some help in grammar and vocabulary
  • will have a sufficiently comprehensive and secure understanding of elementary grammar, vocabulary and syntax to enable them to continue studies of more advanced Latin.
