UNCG in Rome
Benvenuto a Roma! Welcome to Rome!
Rome, the Eternal City, the Caput Mundi, has been at the center of European civilization for two and half millennia. The capital of the Roman Empire, the seat of the Roman Catholic church, and since 1871 the capital of the modern country of Italy, Rome is today home to nearly three million people. To stroll through the streets of Rome is to take a trip through 3,000 years of history, with the past and present mixed together unlike anywhere else in the world. While it’s true that for Rome non basta una vita, “one lifetime is not enough,” the UNCG in Rome program will introduce you to many of the most important historical, religious, and modern places, events, and people that have shaped the urban fabric of one of Europe’s most important cities.
This four-week, six credit speaking intensive course provides students intimate first-hand experience with the sites and monuments of ancient, Christian, and modern Rome. Instruction is provided through daily lectures by the faculty directors, guest lectures by other experts, and student presentations – all done on-site in and around Rome and Naples. Students are required to present two 20 minute presentations – prepared in the spring semester prior to departure – as well as take quizzes and a cumulative exam after returning to the United States, engage in discussion groups, and keep a journal or blog. In the course of the program we will visit and study such important sites as the Etruscan cemetery at Cerveteri, the Colosseum, Forum, St. Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican Museums, the catacombs on the Via Appia, Pompeii, and Herculaneum.
