What do the language courses cover? What do the titles mean?
Elementary Latin I or Elementary Greek I is the first half of the first year college introductory course sequence, offered each fall; Elementary Latin II or Elementary Greek II is the second half of the introductory sequence, offered each spring. Intermediate Latin I (prose, usually Cicero, Caesar, or Petronius) is the first half of the second year course, offered each fall; the sequence continues with Intermediate Latin II (poetry, usually Vergil), offered each spring. Intermediate Greek I (Plato) is the second year course, offered each fall; Intermediate Greek II (Homer) each spring. To fulfill NYU's foreign language requirement, College students must complete the Intermediate II course, that is, the spring term of the second or Intermediate year of the language sequence. After completing the Intermediate sequence (or its equivalent), students take the third year or Advanced course, which they may take more than once (see below).
