Students of Latin examine the language, culture, and ideas of some of the earliest architects of Western civilization and consider their influence on modern language, culture, literature, and philosophy. Learning ancient languages helps cultivate attention to detail, memory, logic, and critical reasoning. Maret’s Latin courses elicit an appreciation of the subtlety and power of language.
Students learn to analyze ancient prose and poetry through a variety of literary and linguistic techniques, improving their ability to read, write, and think critically.
Ancient Greek is offered through Maret's MSON program.
