University of Dallas: Latin in Rome
The University of Dallas invites eager and qualified young Latinists to participate in its one-of-a-kind program in Latin situated just outside of Rome from July 10 to 31, 2006. Latin in Rome is based upon classical and classic texts from the University's Core Curriculum. Participants study passages from Cicero, Pliny, Virgil and Horace relevant to their travels in Rome. Students also read selected passages in translation from these and other authors to enhance visits to sites in Rome and Naples. This program is not a simple summer tour, but rather, a rigorous program of intensive study of Latin in Rome, the most suitable context for such study. Apply on-line by December 1, 2005 for early acceptance and February 1, 2006 for regular acceptance. For information e-mail email@example.com or visit www.udallas.edu/travel/latin.cfm.
