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.
Temple Rome has added several new courses, beginning in Fall 2015, in printmaking, fresco painting, book making, cuisine, and immigration. Special topics will be offered this fall only in Italian cinema and literature and Roman cuisine, and in Spring 2016 only in Greek and Roman Classics (the latter to be confirmed).

Now, students who study abroad at Temple University, Japan Campus can participate in for-credit internships and apply for one of two internship scholarships for financial support, funded through the Freeman Foundation and the TOMODACHI Initiative. Qualified students will receive up to $5000 (TOMODACHI offers additional tuition support for out-of-state students). These scholarships are open to Temple and Non-Temple students.

Psychology majors and minors will be interested to learn that Psychology 2301 Foundations of Developmental Psychology is now being offered on a regular basis at Temple Rome during the fall and spring semesters. Temple students can also plan on being able to satisfy their Arts, Human Behavior and Race and Diversity Gen Ed requirements in Rome. As a reminder, studying abroad in Rome (and any study abroad program with a duration of at least 28 days in country) also provides students with a waiver of the World Society requirement.
Beginning this fall, Temple students can streamline the process to participate in external programs by selecting from a pre-approved list. These programs have been selected based on their reputations for quality and academic rigor and on criteria established by the Faculty Senate Committee for International Programs. Students may also enroll directly in a foreign university or submit a petition to participate in programs that are not on the approved list.
