UGA Classics in Rome mourns the loss of its founder, Dr. Edward Best, who established the program in 1970.
The program deals with the archaeology, the art, and the history of Rome from its origins to modern times. Students sign up for three courses (9 credit hours). This is equivalent to more than half a Minor in Classical Studies
Rome is your classroom: on a typical day the professors take the students to visit various sites in Rome and lecture right in front of the monuments and inside the museums. The guided tours are usually over by lunch time. Afternoons and weekends are for personal exploration of the city.
