UD Celebrates 20 Years of High School Summer Rome Programs with Special Pricing
In honor of the 20th anniversary of the UD summer Rome programs for high school students,
the university is significantly reducing the price for its 2015 programs. The special
pricing will apply to the university's three summer Rome programs for high school
students: Latin in Rome, Shakespeare in Italy, and Rome and the Catholic Church.
"In addition to a comprehensive schedule of travel and sightseeing, summer program
participants delve into college level subject matter under the guidance of experienced
professors. These students won't simply visit Rome as tourists, they will grow intellectually
through rigorous academics and travel the city with faculty who have lived in Italy
and speak the language," said Rebecca Davies, Rome and Summer Programs director.
During Latin in Rome, intermediate and advanced Latin students can deepen their understanding
of Roman civilization and the Latin language through lectures by university faculty,
daily language tutorials, and visits to historical sites and museums from July 8-30,
2015. The cost for Latin in Rome is $3,750.
Shakespeare in Italy explores why William Shakespeare set more than a third of his
plays in Italy. Students will read and discuss three Shakespeare plays and tour Rome
with University of Dallas English faculty from July 8-27, 2015. The cost for Shakespeare
in Italy is $2,999.
In Rome and the Catholic Church, a program offered for the first time in 2015, high
school students will study classic works of the Christian tradition and visit sites
significant to both the ancient and present-day Catholic Church during an academic
travel pilgrimage. Running from July 8-27, 2015, the cost for this program is also
Beginning in 2015, students who participate in a UD high school summer program in
Rome and later enroll as an undergraduate student at the University of Dallas will

off the program's cost.
The cost of each program includes three hours college credit, room, board, land travel,
museum and entrance fees, and international health insurance. Airfare is not included.
Only 30 spaces are open for each program, so students are encouraged to apply early.
