Reading the Classics can change your perspective on life in fascinating and surprising ways. Latin and Greek are the foundational languages of virtually every liberal arts discipline; the study of these languages, and of Greek and Roman authors in English translation, will deepen a student’s understanding of any field he or she pursues and prepare him or her for success on graduate exams such as the LSAT, GRE and MCAT.
