The Classics Department offers every year two prize exams in Latin:
The James A. Notopoulos Latin Prize is designed for students who have taken Latin 203.
The Melvin W. Title Latin Prize is designed for advanced Latin students, typically students who have taken two or more courses on the 300-level.
Each exam consists of two passages of about 15 lines each for translation. Passages are chosen from material read in 2013-2014 in Latin 203 (Pliny the Younger), Latin 351 (Horace), and Latin 352 (Ancient Novel).
Students may sit for whichever exam they prefer, although we recommend that students take the Notopoulos exam unless they have had two or more 300-level Latin courses.
The exams will be held this semester on Tuesday, April 8, 2014, in McCook 307, from 12.00 noon till 1.30 pm.
Each exam carries a cash prize.
Interested students should notify Wendi Delaney, Administrative Assistant for Classics, by email by 4 pm on Monday, April 7 (firstname.lastname@example.org) of their intention to take an exam, and which one.
