Since its establishment in 1966, Temple University Rome has provided students of the arts, architecture, international business and liberal arts with the opportunity to spend a semester, academic year, or summer studying in Rome. Over its 49-year history, Temple Rome has maintained a strong academic and cultural program that takes advantage of the splendid resources Rome and Italy have to offer, both historical and contemporary.
Courses taught at Temple Rome are specifically designed to enhance your understanding of your new surroundings. Many allow you to bring context and life to your studies through frequent on-site instruction within Rome and excursions to other cities, and by incorporating guest speakers and critics into the curriculum.
