Study Latin this Summer at the University of Toronto with in person and online options


The Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto offers a Summer Latin Programme consisting of three levels of study beginning this May!

Students who attend the courses regularly and complete assignments will be provided with an official letter detailing the course content and their participation. Following successful completion of Level I and Level II programming, students may also elect to register for a CMS Latin Exam to receive a Statement of Proficiency, as is a requirement for many post-secondary programs in both North America and internationally.

Students outside of Ontario will be pleased to know that Beginning Latin and its supplementary Beginning Review courses are both offered online. Students wishing to travel to Toronto to participate in either in-person course, Level I Latin, or Level II Latin may find financial support for mobility through the Medieval Academy of America / CARA Summer Scholarship Programme.
