Share with your students this opportunity for Dual enrollment for Latin level 5+

LATN 205W INTERMEDIATE LATIN I – MEDICAL [Writing Enriched] Prerequisite: LATN 102W or placement test. This special section of Intermediate Latin focuses on medical and health-related terminology, contexts, and situations. The course offers practice of the same grammatical concepts and linguistic functions as in all other sections of Intermediate Latin, but the vocabulary and readings are taken from sources for an introduction to the history of medicine from which terms in present-day use developed. Readings include primary sources in Latin from anatomy and physiology, diseases and their treatments, and pharmacology. In this course, students planning for careers in health sciences should be better able to use and comprehend technical terms, many of which derive from Latin. This course will bring students to the novice high/intermediate low reading comprehension level (ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines).
