Audit an Undergraduate Course (Spring Cohort Only) 

The Spring Cohort of Adult Study Abroad overlaps with a 6-week, intensive undergraduate session in May-June. Thanks to this overlap, Adult Study Abroad Spring participants have the unique opportunity to audit a course from a select catalog of undergraduate offerings. The course catalog for Spring 2022 ultimately depends on undergraduate enrollments, but potential audit options include “The Art of Sacred Spaces,” “Children’s Literature,” “Printmaking Studio,” “Digital Photography Studio,” “Cultural Heritage Preservation,” and “Organized Crime.”

Short Course with Temple Rome Faculty (Fall Cohort Only) 

During the Fall semester, Adult Study Abroad participants have the opportunity to supplement our base program offering with an optional Short Course taught by Temple Rome faculty from a variety of academic disciplines. Each Short Course meets once weekly for the duration of the 6-week program. While the Short Course Catalog for 2022 has not yet been finalized, potential options include “Neighborhoods of Modern Rome,” “Studio Art,” “Italian Food Culture,” and “Human Rights & Social Justice in the Mediterranean.”

Weekend Excursion - Sorrento, Pompeii, Naples & Paestum 

Wouldn’t it be nice to explore a different region of Italy, without having to worry about the headaches of planning and logistics? Each semester Adult Study Abroad participants are offered the chance to sign up for a weekend group trip (Friday-Sunday) entirely planned and operated by Temple University Rome. All you have to do is show up to the bus on time – we’ll take care of the rest! 

In 2021 we stayed overnight in the lovely coastal town of Sorrento while spending our days visiting Pompeii, Naples and Paestum alongside Prof. Anna Tuck-Scala. We intend to repeat this itinerary in 2022.
