Student Highlight at the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies

Lauren with her classmates in Rome

We’d like to highlight one of our students, Lauren Baker, who spent the fall semester in Rome at the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies, which is affiliated with Duke University.  Lauren will give an illustrated talk about her experiences--and about the process of applying to the Centro--on Thursday, April 25 at 3:30 PM.  Please come!

Lauren is a senior double major in Classics and English with a minor in creative writing. The Rome program is designed for undergraduate students drawn from over 100  member institutions who are studying ancient history, archaeology, Greek and Latin literature, and ancient art.

The program is available for the spring and fall semester and offers transferable credit to each institution. Students are expected to take four courses, one of them being the required main course called The Ancient City. The course covers Roman archaeology and topography and social and urban history of Rome. The course includes a wide range of site visits, explorations and museum tours in exciting locations you read about in your Classical studies classes.

We hope you enjoy these pictures from Lauren of her trip, and we encourage you to check out the program’s website at https://globaled.duke.edu/programs/rome_ICCS or speak with Professor Gregory Bucher, gbucher6@umd.edu, if you think you might be interested!
