  • Knowledge of both Greek and Latin through the second year.
  • Eight courses total in Greek and Latin, at least six of which must be at the 250-level or above (independent studies below the 300-level do not satisfy this requirement).

Note about Advanced Placement (AP) Credit

Credit for LATIN 25 Introduction to Literature is earned through College Board Advanced Placement tests in Latin. Earning AP credit helps determine your placement in Latin courses at Duke, but does not count toward the major.
