About the courseFor centuries the study of Latin (Classics) has been central to any well-rounded humanistic education. The Romans, along with the Greeks, provide the foundation for many of the values and intellectual ideas that we take for granted in Western civilization. Incredibly sophisticated notions of justice, equality, mutual respect and freedom were hammered out amid the stone and struggle for survival and have become our inheritance. In the Classics we study that inheritance through literary and material remains. The concentration in Latin focuses mainly on the Roman contributions, with an emphasis on the advanced reading of Latin literature from 200 BC through the Medieval period.

From a small campus of seven buildings in the wilderness on the main road between Tuscaloosa and Huntsville (now University Boulevard) in the 1830s, UA has grown to a massive 1,970-acre (800 ha) campus in the heart of Tuscaloosa. There are 297 buildings on campus containing some 10,600,000 square feet (980,000 m2) of space. In 2010, the school added 168 acres to its campus by purchasing the land formerly belonging to Bryce Hospital. It also plans to acquire more land to accommodate the continuing growth of the enrolment.
