Latin 112 provides an intensive introduction to Latin, and is the equivalent of Latin 101-102 or Latin 112A-112B. There are no prerequisites, though some background in Romance language study may be helpful. As we will cover two semesters of material in less than five weeks, the pace is fast and the workload necessarily demanding. Students who successfully complete the course may advance to Latin 212 (in Summer Session II) or Latin 201 (in the Fall semester).

ATTENDANCE & PREPARATION
It is absolutely essential that you attend every class for the entire class period, complete all assignments on time, and come to each class fully prepared. Absences will be excused in the case of serious illness or serious emergencies, but you must provide the instructors with appropriate documentation for verification. In addition, all holidays or special events observed by organized religions will be honored for those students who show affiliation with a particular religion (UA Calendar of Religious Holidays). Absences pre-approved by the UA Dean of Students (or Dean's designee) will also be honored.
Absences will NOT be excused for transportation issues, vacations, weddings, work schedules, vel sim. Students who accumulate one unexcused absence will lose 25% of their attendance, preparation, and participation grade for the semester; after two unexcused absences, students will lose an additional 25%; after three unexcused absences, students will lose the remaining 50% of their attendance, preparation, and participation grade.
Late assignments will not be accepted. Quizzes and tests cannot be made up. There will be no extra credit assignments.
