Study Abroad: Rome
Rome: History, Culture, and Experience
Program Date: June 2 – June 16, 2018
This 12-day seminar introduces students to the history and culture of the Eternal City, with a focus on the built environment. Notre Dame faculty in a range of fields, from art history and architecture to anthropology, provide students with an immersive experience and guide students in their exploration of this fascinating city. Students have the opportunity to visit many of Italy’s most revered cultural treasures and participate in rich cultural and intellectual exchange.
The state of the art Notre Dame Rome Global Gateway on Via Ostilia, which is a stone’s throw from the Colosseum, serves as the home for lectures and discussions, while the city itself, with its rich assortment of monuments, museums, and densely-textured, storied neighborhoods serves as the students’ true classroom.
Students are eligible to receive one college credit upon completion of the program. The program is limited to 18 students who will be rising high school seniors by the time of the program.
