Our course offerings abroad this summer include Women Latinists and Classics Abroad in Florence.


Women Latinists (17 - 31 July 2022) requires an intermediate-advanced background in Latin and will focus on honing Latin reading skills exclusively through studying Latin texts by women from antiquity and beyond.


Classics Abroad (10 - 17 July 2022) is perfect for students with or without Latin and will focus on the transmission and revival of classical antiquity through the Renaissance, with a strong emphasis on primary sources, site visits and immersive experiences.
