Latin

In the IB Diploma you can study Latin at Standard or Higher Level as your language (or one of your languages). The course involves studying for an unseen language paper, reading two literature set texts, and a research dossier which enables you to explore an aspect of the Classical world of your choice in depth.

We also offer Standard Level Classical Civilisation (a humanity, not a language), which involves the study of Greek and Roman history and literature without any language content.

The IB Latin course strikes a balance between language learning, literary reading and historical understanding. It is a challenging course and, as a result, is well-respected as a subject at university and beyond.
