Course Outcomes

Latin Morphology

Successful students will refine their mastery of Classical Latin morphology. Students will be able to identify fully the forms of nouns, adjectives, verbs (finite and infinitive forms), adverbs, participles, etc.

Grammar, Syntax, and Rhetoric

Successful students should master Latin grammar and syntax and begin to master Latin rhetoric. While they should be able to recognize and identify grammatical and syntactical constructions--a practice already refined in Latin 201, they should also be able to recognize and identify rhetorical devices employed by the author(s) being read and begin to understand the effect of those devices as employed.

Translation of Complex Latin Prose

Successful students should be able to translate a complex Latin prose text into good English.

Place in Literary History

Successful students should be able to locate the literary accomplishments of the chosen author(s) (such as Cicero and Sallust) in the context of Latin literature generally and of their own literary context specifically.
