What Will You Learn?

No other culture has affected the development of the modern world quite as much as the Romans. Their empire, which stretched over four centuries, gave us concrete, roads, the calendar, stunning architecture, an arts and literary culture from which much of our understanding of the world has grown, and so much more.

But why were they so successful? How did they excel militarily, politically and culturally in a way that allowed them to dominate Europe and so much of the middle eastern world? And what, in the end, caused it all to tumble and fall?

With 11 modules – each dedicated to a specific area of the Roman Empire – and 4 videos, these are some of the questions answered in the Introduction to the Roman Empire Diploma Course. We’ll examine the evolution of this empire from republic to dominant European power. You will learn about the Roman rulers, some who expanded the empire in profound ways; others who abused their privilege of leadership quite horrifically.

As part of your studies, you will also review what it was like to live in these extraordinary times, exploring the culture, the law and the day-to-day life of men and women under Roman rule.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Gain a firm foundational knowledge of the history of the Roman Empire
  • Understand the Roman Empire’s importance to modern life
  • Know of Julius Caesar’s significance to the founding of the Roman Empire
  • Be aware of how the Roman Empire expanded
  • Know more about ordinary life during Roman times
  • Understand why the military was key to Roman imperial success
  • Be familiar with the most significant and famous Roman emperors, poets and writers
  • Be aware of the imperial Roman’s major architectural and engineering advancements
