Classical Studies | Medical Terms from Greek & Latin
C209 | 0992-0993 | Staff

WARNING:  This course does not count for the Foreign Culture

requirement, and it does not fulfill the Arts and Humanities

Distribution requirement. A course in the formation of words

used in science and medicine from basic Greek and Latin
roots.  During the semester we gradually learn 700 Greek and

Latin words which are frequent elements in scientific
vocabulary.  By dictation, memorization, and analysis of
actual medical or biology terms, the student gains the
basics of a highly usable scientific vocabulary.  No
previous exposure to Greek and Latin is expected or
necessary.  There are four examinations.
