The Latin program is designed to provide thorough and rigorous training in ancient Latin. Majors may leverage the training this major provides toward advancement in a variety of fields, including teaching. (Majors of ours have gained admission to Master of Arts in Teaching [MAT] programs in Latin.) Alternatively, the enrichment that Latin majors gain can supplement training in other disciplines, including Medieval and Early Modern Studies. Either way, this major holds many possibilities for students.
Students majoring in Latin will take a minimum of five courses beyond the 102 level, one course in Roman History, and additional courses in culture, civilization, and so on to round out their program.
Scholarships and Funding
Students of exceptional achievement may be selected upon admission to Binghamton for one of three types of significant four-year scholarship commitments: President’s Scholarship, Provost’s Scholarship, and Dean’s Scholarship. There is no application process; awards are competitive and vary in amount. Full-time enrollment and minimum grade-point averages are required to maintain eligibility.
