Study Abroad in Rome information session

Explore an opportunity to experience the urban landscape of ancient Rome through its art, monuments and archaeology.

Students interested in studying abroad in Rome this summer are invited to an information session about CLSC 326/426—“Rome On Site: The Archaeology of the Eternal City.” The session will be held Friday, Jan. 25 at 1 p.m. in Mather House, Room 100.

About the study abroad course

Rome’s archaeological remains tell the story of how a small Italian village became the capital of a vast multicultural empire that reached three continents.

Evelyn Adkins, assistant professor of classics, and Mark D. Hammond, an adjunct faculty member in classics, will provide those who participate in the course an archaeological insider’s view of Rome, Pompeii and other nearby sites, drawing on their years of experience living and excavating in Italy and the Mediterranean.

This study abroad course is open to both undergraduates and graduate students. Undergraduates who have a strong interest in ancient Rome and who are looking to satisfy their General Humanities and/or Global and Diversity credits, are encouraged to attend. Graduate students who would benefit from an in-depth exploration of the monuments and art of the Eternal City are also welcome.

Previous coursework dealing with ancient Rome is not necessary, nor is knowledge of Italian.
