LAT 324 • Advanced Latin Grammar and Composition
12:00 PM-1:00 PM
This course will provide an intensive review of Latin grammar, morphology and syntax as well as an introduction to the fundamental elements of Latin prose style across a range of genres and periods. It will be assumed that the student has a good, general grasp of Latin syntax and morphology. Students registered for Latin 324 must have taken AT LEAST 4 semesters of Latin and, preferably, also at least one upper division Latin course at the University of Texas. No previous experience in prose composition is necessary for success in this course; you must, however, be willing to attend class regularly, participate, and prepare the assigned compositions and readings if you expect to do well. Class meetings will be devoted to discussions of Latin grammar, syntax, and style; review of weekly assignments; and the close reading of extended prose passages.
Your final grade will be determined by your performance on the following exercises: 3 midterms (60%) weekly assignments and participation (25%) original prose composition and peer evaluation (15%)
