Latin in Rome seeks intermediate and advanced students of Latin who desire to refine and deepen their understanding of the language and the Romans who spoke it. The program includes lectures by university faculty who have lived and taught in Rome, daily language tutorials and group discussions of texts, as well as visits to historical sites and museums.
Participants will study several passages from Cicero, Pliny, Virgil, Horace and Livy to enhance visits to sites in Rome and Naples. Students will also read selected literature in translation to support travels in and around Rome.
This program is not simply a summer tour, but a college-level Latin course. Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive three hours of college credit.
