Summer Study in Rome and Pompeii

A study-abroad program through the Department of Classical Studies


Roman Forum

The Department of Classical Studies has established an intensive three-week program in Ancient Roman Studies focused on Rome and Pompeii.  Students will visit archaeological sites, and study monuments and works of art of classical antiquity in their original setting.

Two weeks will be focused on excursions to sites within Rome and the surrounding area.  A third week will be spent in the Bay of Naples area, visiting sites and museums.  Housing and excursion logistics are provided by institutional partners. Most meals are included, including bag lunches on days of site visits.

Students will earn 4 credits for the on-site course in Italy through CLCV 489: The Ancient City.  Course requirements will include the completion of assigned readings, site reports, and a final exam.  Students may choose to earn one additional credit through an independent study course, CLCV 494:Undergraduate Research Abroad in Classical Studies, offered on campus prior to the trip.
