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.

Psychology and more Gen Ed courses now offered at Temple University Rome

Fri, January 9, 2015

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.

New approved External Programs list and process

Fri, December 19, 2014

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.

Wed, September 17, 2014

Temple Today's Anna Goldfarb interviewed our peer advisor, Jordan Sievers, and Assistant Vice President, Denise Connerty, about the Freeman Foundation internship program.

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.
