There are so many reasons to take Classics courses. The professors in the department are some of the best at PC, and I think a lot of people would be surprised to find out how relevant these classes are. Taking Latin will absolutely help with any other language courses, and it's always interesting to discover that current customs in our society actually have their roots in ancient rituals and practices (ever wonder why a husband carries his bride over the threshold?).
I would highly recommend taking a Classics course to anyone considering it, especially if you have any interest in history.
