Latin Language and
Culture Study

Liberal Arts Perspective (LAP) Curriculum

In Fall 2021, I will be a junior or a senior at Gustavus and have previous experience in Latin.

To meet minimum graduation requirements, students in the Liberal Arts Perspective Curriculum will complete at least two sequential courses of a non-English language at the college level. You may choose to continue language study beyond the minimum graduation requirements. 

Please note the following for your study of Latin at Gustavus:

  • Students who have never taken any Latin courses should take Latin 101.
  • Students who have taken some high school Latin courses should contact professor Matt Panciera in order to be placed in the right course.
  • For questions regarding Latin courses that can count for college credit, including PSEO courses in Latin, College in the Schools, or transfer courses from another college or university, please contact the Registrar's Office.
  • Students who enter Gustavus with an AP Latin score of 4 should take LAT 201 (or a higher course) to complete their language requirement. Students who enter Gustavus with an AP Latin score of 5 have completed their language requirement.
  • Students who have taken the AP Latin exam but did not score 4 or above, should contact professor Matt Panciera in order to be placed in the right course.

Please contact professor Matt Panciera or the department chair with any additional questions.
