The curriculum embraces architecture, the visual arts, history, religion and the basic techniques of archeological analysis. Students learn to see and understand the Roman world in its own context through lectures and discussion in situ. We develop a deeper understanding of types of evidence and how we reconstruct and write history, especially history "from the bottom up" or "from the margins."
The academic requirements consist of on-site group work, short weekly papers, oral reports, and an independent research project.
