As a Latin minor, you will couple a basic level of competence in the Latin language with insight into its history and culture. Your interest in Latin can support other academic goals or give you a deeper understanding of how your own language and culture evolved.
If you are considering a career in law or medicine, St. Kate's minor in Latin, offered on our St. Paul campus, can help prepare you for further studies.
It is also one of the few growth areas in secondary education, and teachers are in high demand. Students in middle and high school have shown a resurging interest in Latin studies, resulting in a nationwide shortage of Latin teachers.
To complete the Latin minor at St. Kate's, you must take four Latin language courses as well as one course related to the classical or Roman world. A variety of options are available covering topics in mythology, philosophy, theology and more. You can even fulfill your final course requirement with an advanced course in Latin or through an approved foreign study experience that concentrated on the study of the classical world.
At St. Catherine University, you will grow as a leader who engages with intention, acts with justice and serves with compassion. You will build personal relationships with faculty and students alike, while you become immersed in active and collaborative methods of learning to achieve your goals.
