Program Description:

The College of William & Mary’s Department of Classical Studies has established an intensive three-week summer program in Ancient Roman Studies, focused on Rome and Pompeii. Students visit archaeological sites, and study monuments and works of art of classical antiquity in their original setting. 

During the program two weeks are devoted to excursions to sites within Rome and the surrounding area.  The third week is spent in the Bay of Naples area, visiting sites and museums. Housing and excursion logistics are provided by institutional partners. Most meals are included in the program fee, including bag lunches on days of site visits.

All students will earn 4 credits in CLCV 489: The Ancient City, an on-site course in Italy. Course requirements will include the completion of assigned readings, site reports, a journal and a final exam or essay. Students may choose to add on a research component to the course and receive 1-3 additional credits by enrolling in CLCV 494: Undergraduate Research Abroad in Classical Studies and writing a research paper. If selected for participation by faculty, students may also add the research symposium in the following fall for an additional 1 credit. The total number of credits that can be earned in this program is 4 without the research component. If the research component is undertaken, then students may also earn 1-3 credits for the summer research and 1 additional credit for the fall research symposium, for a total of up to 8 credits in the program. Grades will appear on W&M transcripts and will be included in GPA calculations.

Please note that this program runs alternately with the Athens/Nafplio program on even numbered years.

Please note that the research credits (CLCV 494) are not included in the cost of the program.

The Reves Center advisor for the Rome & Pompeii summer program is Molly DeStafney,
