The Layers of Rome Education Resource and Study Abroad Program is a platform for high school and college students studying and faculty teaching in the subject of the Roman Empire. The site includes lesson plans, presentations and online version of our interactive traveling exhibit for teaching and researching.
Study Abroad Program
Our program immerses college students into Roman history, art and culture by visiting Rome and other selected cities to learn in the environment and absorb all senses of Rome's way of life. Students apply hands-on skills and studies to navigate and solve real-world scenarios while developing lesson plans, presentations and interactive exhibits. Three weeks on campus and three weeks in Italy, students can earn up to 6-credit hours in the subjects of Humanities, History and Communications, all block electives. In addition, the research students produce is published on our Layers of Rome site.
