The Department of Art History & Archaeology at the University of Missouri & the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology at the University of Michigan have established an academic and research partnership focusing on the excavation of ancient Gabii, Italy.

The Gabii Project, a multi-institution initiative launched in 2007 and twice awarded an NEH Collaborative Grant, has been recently approved as an official study abroad program affiliated with MU International Center. Starting in 2017, students from MU and other North American universities will be able to enroll in a for-credit course on Archaeological Field Methods (ARHA 2940-7940; 6 credit hours). The course is offered at both undergraduate and graduate levels by Prof. Marcello Mogetta, who also serves as the Gabii Project Managing Director. More information on the application procedures will be posted in late October on the project’s websites (http://sites.lsa.umich.edu/gabiiproject/; http://gabiiproject.org/), on the AIA Archaeological Fieldwork Opportunities Bulletin (https://www.archaeological.org/fieldwork/afob), as well as on the study abroad page of MU International Center institutional website (https://international.missouri.edu/study-outside-the-us/programs/search.php).
