Teaching Certificate in Latin

Students interested in a secondary school teaching certificate with a major or minor in Latin must have Professor Deborah Ross (2147 Angell Hall; 734.764.0357; dpross@umich.edu) approve their program of study. The prerequisite for either the major or the minor is Latin 232 or the equivalent.
