Since 1976 the University of Dallas has provided the opportunity to study Greek and Latin outside the limits of the regular academic year. Our summer learners include undergraduate and graduate students from our own and other institutions; high school teachers seeking accreditation, review, professional development, or deepening of knowledge; and a number of people who simply want to be able to study good books in the original language. High school students who have completed the junior year and will be 16 years old by July 1st are also encouraged to apply. Learn more.

The University of Dallas invites eager and qualified young Latinists to participate in its one-of-a-kind program in Latin situated just outside of Rome. Like all of our study-travel programs, Latin in Rome is based upon classical and classic texts from the University's Core Curriculum. Participants study passages from Cicero, Pliny, Vergil and Horace relevant to their travels in Rome. Students also read selected passages in translation from these and other authors to enhance visits to sites in Rome and Naples. The academic program will include lectures by university faculty who have lived and taught in Rome, daily language tutorials, group discussions of texts, as well as guided visits to the historical sites and world famous museums in the vicinity. This program is not a simple summer tour, but rather, a rigorous program of intensive study of Latin in Rome, the most suitable context for such study. Learn more.
