Event Details

Event Description

This competitive three-day program is primarily for exceptional high school students, university students and lifelong learners. Program participants will gain the ability to innovate and learn across disciplines, think critically and independently, and reason and communicate clearly — the foundation for leadership in all professions. Through this accelerated program, participants will gain the ability to ace school or job interviews by engaging with a prominent Yale professor, learning how to appreciate Roman Architecture, and gaining insights from a Yale undergraduate admissions interviewer.

Professor Diana E.E. Kleiner, known worldwide for her Roman Architecture course at Yale and on the Coursera platform, will introduce you to Rome as a city and an empire that encompassed three continents: Europe, Asia, and Africa. She will peel back the centuries to reveal Rome’s birth on seven hills, its evolution, and its expansion into a superpower with a constellation of what she calls “mini Romes.”
