Students will enroll in the above courses with an option of an independent study while in Rome. They will have daily lectures in the classroom, with continued research and observations during the afternoons and out-of-town site visits.

The visual artifacts in Rome, both current and historical, will provide an opportunity to examine the culture surrounding these images and how the narratives of each have evolved over time.
