Program Description

The streets of Rome and other sites in Italy become extensions of your classroom as you explore ancient Roman remains and historic sites, and world-renowned museums and churches. Classes before departure (on-campus and online) complement the two weeks in Italy. The ancient Roman Republic and Empire comes alive through extensive, on-site teaching in Rome, Ostia, Tivoli, Sorrento, Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Naples. The program addresses ancient Roman history, literature, art, and archaeology through tangible remains and the literary record, while walking in the ancient footsteps of the Romans.

Accommodation while in Italy:
Accommodation will be in Double/triple/quad occupancy rooms in two-star hotels, or similar, will be provided in Rome and Sorrento. Breakfast in the hotels provided daily.

The group will enjoy welcome and farewell dinners in Rome.

EUH 4990/EUH 5990 Rome and the Mediterranean World
Dr. Marie-Thérèse Champagne, Department of History
ANT3990/ANG6905 Archaeology of Roman Life & Death
Dr. Kristina Killgrove, Department of Anthropology

Each course is 3 credits. Students may enroll in one or both of the courses for UWF in Italy.
EUH3411 and ANT3990 present the history, (bio)archaeology, art, and literature of ancient Rome from the earliest known occupants, the Latini, through the reign of Constantine (circa 10th century BC through 4th century AD). These courses encompass two weeks of intensive, daily, on-campus classes and two weeks of extensive on-site teaching in Rome, Ostia, Tivoli, Sorrento, Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Naples. Students will get an overview of history, literature, art, and archaeology in the center of the Roman world and will explore the connections be-tween the tangible remains and literary record of Rome, all while experiencing first-hand the extant evidence.

Pre-departure class meetings:
Students may take one or both courses. Prior to departure, students attend two weeks of daily class meetings on the UWF campus (and online), May 11 - May 22. Students must attend on-campus class meetings and participate in course activities abroad, and non-student participants are encouraged to attend the on-campus classes to enrich their on-site experience.
