Latin Faculty: Owen Ewald
Latin was the language of Western Europe — its literature, its science, its philosophy, and its theology — for a millennium and a half. Majoring in European Studies: Latin brings students back to the ancient roots of Western culture in order to understand how we arrived where we are. Based on in-depth language study, an approved study-abroad program, The Symposium (formerly called the European Studies Symposium) presentation, and the European studies Capstone, this major gives insight into the similarities and differences among the Roman Empire, the mediaeval Latin West, and the modern European Union.
