Latin and Greek are the foundation 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. Reading the Classics can change your perspective on life in fascinating and surprising ways.

Georgetown College offers courses in Latin and Greek language through the second year level, with the option of continuing through independent study; in LAT and GRK 201-202 students read ancient authors in their original languages. The College also offers courses on Classical mythology, epic, drama, history, philosophy, art, and political theory.
