This one week Spring break course examines the inscriptions and graffiti found in the city of Rome, many of which are still in situ. Through a series of walking tours through the city of Rome (along with a brief excursion to Pompeii and Herculaneum), we will read and examine the various inscriptions that the Romans have left behind, from the archaic period to the modern period. In addition to reading these inscriptions, we will also discuss the historical and physical contexts of these inscriptions. Grading will consist of attendance and a final digital report about one inscription in Rome. Instructor permission required.

There are many scholarships and funding sources, both need and merit-based, for education abroad, and we encourage you to apply. Visit our Scholarships page
for more information.
Do not wait until the last minute to research what you may be eligible for, as scholarships are competitive, and will not be awarded for poorly-written applications. Scholarships for short-term and summer programs, and for international students, are limited, so it’s especially important to begin looking for scholarships sooner, rather than later.
Applications may require a copy of your official transcript, essays or personal statement, letters of recommendation, and financial aid information.
