As one of the oldest and most prestigious US university programs in Italy, Temple University Rome prepares students to become global citizens by equipping them with enhanced cross-cultural, linguistic, analytic, and problem-solving skills. Within a structured academic, social and cultural framework that uses the city as a classroom, studio and laboratory, Temple Rome provides an immersive experience through high-quality instruction and hands-on, experiential learning. True to Temple’s mission, Temple Rome proactively supports students by creating a safe, inclusive, welcoming, and supportive environment in which to work, learn, and grow while providing learning opportunities, programming and activities that engage the local environment and draw an international community to Temple.

One of two overseas campuses of Temple University, Temple Rome serves as a conduit for the University to Italy, Europe and the wider global community, as a platform for main campus faculty research, collaborations and connections throughout Italy, and as a pipeline for student and faculty recruitment, institutional advancement, and raising the University’s profile globally.


As a premier American study abroad program in Rome/Italy, and a more comprehensive Global Campus for Temple University:

  • Temple Rome will continue to enhance its enrollment, curriculum and programming to result in more opportunities for more diverse student populations from Temple main campus, Rome, and beyond.
  • Temple Rome will incorporate and build strategically on the richness of Rome and will use its location in Europe and the Mediterranean to bring students, faculty and the University in contact with other realities beyond Philadelphia and the US.
  • Temple Rome will expand its platform as a locus for Temple University intellectual and creative work, for faculty research, development and alumni outreach, international student recruiting, adult education, not-for-credit programming, and more.
  • Temple Rome will further enhance its presence and stature in Rome through new academic and non-credit educational initiatives, as well as cultural and social programming engaging the local population, and reflecting even more positively on the University in general.
