News and Announcements
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.
You can learn Japanese in class and study Japanese culture, but navigating Japan’s subway system for the first time when you touch down in Tokyo is when it truly hits you that you are on the other side of the world.
Thanks to the generosity of the Maxine Edelson Elkin Endowed Lecture Fund, Iris Dawn Parker will visit Temple as part of her fall college tour. Iris taught photo students as part of the School of Media and Communication's Study Away program in South Africa last summer, a program co-directed by Assoc. Professor Karen Turner.
Temple students who participated in the summer 2014 program in Jamaica, Allison Griffin and Ellen Carney, raised funds to begin a summer camp for students with anger and agression issues. Their efforts paid off quickly--the students raised over $1200 and the first camp launched this summer.
