Latin coursework or a minor in Latin may be helpful for those in the medical field, and it is invaluable training for those preparing to go into law.

Increasing popularity

Due to an enormous resurgence in interest in the study of Latin at the middle- and high-school level, there is currently a serious nationwide shortage of Latin teachers. Latin is one of the few current growth areas in secondary education.

St. Kate’s offers a minor only in this field.
