Language Course

Rome - Ancient languages and methodology courses - Summer 2024

Overview

Since 2010 the summer intensive courses in Rome have brought to the Eternal City hundreds of students who look for a perfect environment for the study of Latin, Ancient Greek, and Biblical Hebrew (3 weeks in duration).

In addition to Classical Languages, Polis Institute and the Holy Cross University opened a methodology course in order to train teachers according to the Polis method.

The language courses last for three weeks, while the methodology course lasts for two weeks. Students of the Holy Cross University can submit a request to their dean for the credits received to be recognized.

For the location of the courses in Rome: Location of PUSC

Note about hybrid courses:

  • A hybrid course means that some students will be attending in-person while others online. You can choose the in-person or the online modality when registering. We highly recommend the in-person modality when possible.
  • Once the courses starts, it is not possible to switch from one modality to the other (from in-person to online or from online to in-person). If a student needs to switch modalities for reasons beyond his or her control, the student can contact the office to request for approval to change modality.
