For nearly fifty years, Temple Rome has provided students with a rewarding study abroad experience. What began as an art program has grown into a curriculum that provides opportunities for a broad range of majors, including new courses in business, psychology, Italian, art, and starting next spring and summer, science Gen Ed courses. A range of volunteer opportunities, a growing internship program, and an art gallery that has become well known in the contemporary Roman art scene, all combine to offer students a truly immersive study abroad experience.
