Classics majors may take advantage of some extraordinary opportunities for study abroad: for a summer, a term, or a year; work on a dig, tour ancient archeological sites, study language, literature, or history at a foreign university. Our advisors will work with you to arrange for credit toward the major.
Many of our students participate in the affiliated program at the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome (administered through Duke), or in Athens at the Arcadia Center for Hellenic Studies. Classroom work is accompanied by visits to sites and excavations, museum tours and lectures, and field trips to various parts of Italy or Greece, respectively.
Classics students who wish to apply to the ICCS Program in Rome must meet in advance with Prof. Robert Wallace, the Classics Department's representative, who will write a letter of recommendation for all applicants from our department.
Other recommended (but non-affiliated) programs to which you may apply include:
The Brown University Summer Study in Rome, titled "Rome: Art, Archaeology and Civic Life from the End of the Republic through the Early Empire" and the summer sessions of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.
