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 $2,999.

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 be eligible for a $4,000 tuition scholarship ($1,000 per academic year). Students who complete their application by Monday, Dec. 15, will receive an additional 10 percent 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. For more information, visit udallas.edu/travel.
