Make your way to the ‘Eternal City’ of Rome with the opportunity to earn college credit. Included in the program are planned excursions to Orvieto, Florence, and Ostia Antica.
Begin with four full days of intensive lectures at HCC, including one class on 1) ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, 2) Greece, 3) Rome, and 4) Late Antiquity. If part of the program, you will visit two art museums, considered among the best in the world. You will also visit one museum focused on Ancient Rome, and numerous historical sites of Ancient Rome, including the Pantheon, Coliseum, Forum, Ostia Antica, and Palatine Hill. Experience countless churches, representing different styles, including Romanesque, Gothic, and Baroque.
The course, therefore, will have a strong component of traditional instruction and assessment, but it will also contain the unparalleled experience of seeing, touching, and exploring historical sites. If you are taking the program for non-credit, you are expected to participate in all activities of the program. Please note that this study abroad program will involve significant walking in high summertime temperatures and direct sunlight.
