In keeping with the overall learning goals for Foundational Studies courses, Latin 215 (LAT 215) introduces students to the variety, complexity, and richness of Classical Greek and Roman mythology in order to not only place these myths within their original social and historical contexts but also, and simultaneously, consider their continued influence on Western art, thought, and culture. As students will see, this influence extends well beyond the obvious realms of literature and other arts to a broad range of academic disciplines from astronomy to zoology. The course assignments will help students achieve these goals. This course is conducted in English.
LLL 350 courses are interdisciplinary studies in languages, literatures, or linguistics. Each course is a thematic investigation of a particular topic or issue in languages, literatures, or linguistics that integrates multiple ways of knowing through critical reading and a project or research involving analysis and writing at an advanced level. Topics vary. LLL 350 is repeatable when topics are different. (Courses are taught in English.) Below you will find a list of recent topics covered by LLL 350.
