Why Pursue a Latin Specialization with a Professional Education Minor at APSU?

If you wish to teach, major in a foreign language and minor in professional education. Pair your study of foreign language with a major or minor in business to prepare to work abroad or for an international company. The opportunity to teach Latin in a Secondary School setting is one of the many end goals of pursuing this combination of major and minor.

The study of Latin remains vital and the current nationwide shortage of secondary school Latin teachers provides an added incentive for those who wish to pursue studies in Latin.
