News & Events
During George Washington University's 2012 Summer Sessions, a second semester of on-line Classical Latin instruction will be offered to supplement the existing Latin 1001 that has been taught during each of the past two summers. These courses may be taken separately or together as an intensive 12-week introduction to the subject. The paired courses will provide eight semester hours of Classical Latin, the equivalent of a full year of college-level language instruction.
