Latin Course Placement
If you have studied Latin before coming to Berkeley and are unsure which of our classes would work best for you, you can sign up online for our Latin advisory diagnostic quiz. This quiz is not formal and cannot be used to meet language requirements at Berkeley or any other institution. It's strictly for receiving a recommendation for the best courses to begin taking Latin at UCB.
