Brown University, in affiliation with Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies (the Centro), offers a unique 2-week summer program located in the heart of Rome. The program explores Roman life and culture through a wide range of disciplines – history, literature, language, and the arts. 

In this program, students participate in seminars, site visits, and workshops, supplemented with weekend excursions to Pompeii, the Amalfi Coast, Tuscany, and Umbria. Students will receive a private guided tour of the Colosseum by the engineer who re-created an elevator lift inside the ancient ruin. Courses are taught in English by Brown faculty and local experts.
