The normal sequence is intended for those with little or no background in Latin who wish to learn the language at the normal pace.

Intensive Course Sequence 195 and 295

The intensive sequence assumes no prior Latin, and is intended for those who wish to learn Latin very quickly.  These courses, offered through the Residential College, meet four days a week for 2 hours per day.  This sequence covers four semesters of normal Latin sequence in only two, and satisfies the LSA language requirement upon completion of 295.
