Why Choose Latin?

No other language has had such an important and sustained impact on Western culture. Students of classics, ancient, medieval, or early modern history need to study the original Latin documents, many of which have not been translated. Scholars of English literature often need to familiarise themselves with the works of writers from earlier periods. In addition, philosophy and religious studies students can benefit from consulting Latin sources. In brief, knowledge of Latin can be useful for many people and professions.
