Temple Rome Undergraduate Summer II (4 weeks)

The Global Good's four-week undergraduate seminar offers students the opportunity to complete either Intellectual Heritage I: The Good Life or Intellectual Heritage II: The Common Good, in the Eternal City. These courses pair small seminars, in which students read and discuss works of enduring philosophical, literary, and social value, with frequent field trips to sites of ancient and modern cultural significance in and around Rome. The program opens with an orientation session, and all courses are taught  by Temple faculty from the US campus with expertise in European culture, history, and literature.

Program dates

Four weeks: Late June to late July
