Rome - History & Classics

Program Overview

Our History & Classics Program is designed to provide a thorough overview of the archaeological, political, religious, and intellectual history of Italy—from ancient to current day. Choose from a variety of courses exploring the topography, archaeology, history, urban infrastructure, works of arts, mythology, and Latin literature and epigraphy of Rome. All of the courses offered in this program feature numerous course-related trips to museums, sites, and monuments. Imagine studying the rise of the Roman Empire and taking a day trip to explore Hadrian’s Villa as part of your coursework. Or studying totalitarian regimes in Italy and Europe and visiting the WWII landmarks in and around Rome.

NOTE: Please refer to IES Abroad predeparture materials for planning travel.

Why Rome?

There’s no place like Rome. With its abundant architectural and artistic riches, Rome celebrates more than 2,500 years of history. Think about it: you will be enveloped in the Roman past—the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, St. Peter’s Basilica—while enjoying all of the modern-day cultural jewels that the city has to offer. Why wait a minute longer? Indulge in Rome’s splendor—and did we mention the food?—as soon as possible.
