Temple Rome Summer II: Global Good (4 weeks)
The Global Good's four-week undergraduate seminar in Rome offers you the opportunity to complete Intellectual Heritage II: The Common Good in the Eternal City. Through small seminars, you will read and discuss works of enduring philosophical, literary, and social value, with frequent field trips to sites of cultural significance in and around Rome. This version of Intellectual Heritage II will explore the intersections of power amid the ancient and the modern, as we explore history, art and landscape.
Temple’s Education Abroad office has made extensive efforts to make studying abroad possible for summer 2021. Given the global changes amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, your study abroad experience will differ from how you may have imagined it. As we move forward cautiously, but optimistically, we will provide you with updates specific to your program. In the meantime, we encourage you to reference Education Abroad’s COVID-19 Updates and COVID-19 Acknowledgement of Risks.
