Courses, Certification Programs, and Degree Offerings

  • Central Connecticut State University is working to create a certification program for the teaching of Latin. Attached you will find the program of studies. In order to make this idea come to fruition we are seeking support from Latin groups. We need at least 10 students to sign up for this cohort in order to run the program. As an incentive to enroll into the program we are looking for funding to offer scholarships to help defray the cost of course work at the University level. If you are interesting in supporting this initiative in any way¬†please contact me at the below email address. Gina Gallo Reinhard¬†ginagallo@bristolk12.org
