A unique course taught both in Reading and at the British School at Rome (BSR).
This course's focus is the city of Rome from antiquity to the present: its history, archaeology, topography, demography, art, architecture and more. You will spend six months at the University of Reading being taught by, amongst others, Rome expert and architectural historian Matthew Nicholls and archaeologist and economic historian Annalisa Marzano. You then spend two months in Rome at the BSR for an intensive series of site visits (c. 100 hours), lectures and seminars, before returning to Reading to write your dissertation.

I chose the MA in the City of Rome course at the University of Reading because it is truly unique. After completing fascinating modules at Reading, taught by experts on the ancient city, we got to spend two months in Rome, engaging first-hand with the material. The knowledge and skills I gained in everything from Roman architecture to 3D modelling have been incredibly influential.
