Join us on February 2nd at 5 pm EST for another information session, “Georgetown in Rome: The Ancient City.”

Students who embark on the program will delve into the classical history of the Eternal City, exploring up close how architecture, art, and urban space shaped daily life in the ancient world. By the end of the course, students will have a thorough knowledge of the topography of ancient Rome and the major monuments and edifices that have survived from it. Students will also gain an understanding of how Imperial Roman rulers made use of art and architecture to hold onto power, and how from the fourth century AD onwards Christianity gradually gained control of the city of Rome and reshaped its destiny as seat of the Roman Catholic Church. Arrival and departure dates are May 25, 2021, and June 7, 2021, respectively!
