The undergraduate minor in Latin requires a minimum of 15 s.h., at least 12 s.h. of which must be in advanced courses taken at the University of Iowa. All courses in Latin numbered CLSL:2001 or above are considered advanced for the minor. Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in all courses for the minor and in all UI courses for the minor. Coursework in the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass.

Students may count one advanced relevant classics department course taught in English and centered around the ancient Roman world (prefix CLSA:3000 or above) toward the minor. A maximum of 6 s.h. of work for another University of Iowa major, minor, or certificate and up to 3 s.h. of lower-level transfer credit may be counted toward the minor.

For a list of relevant courses, contact the undergraduate advisor. Students who have taken high school Latin should consult the advisor. The Latin Advanced Placement (AP) exam with a score of 4 or higher may be used to complete the General Education Program: World Languages component, or used as elective hours. Students with previous knowledge of Latin language, should take the World Languages Placement Test (WLPT) to determine the best level for your first enrollment in a language course.
