Study Abroad in Rome: A Representative of Temple-Rome to Visit Penn State

Temple-Rome is one of the most popular study abroad programs among visual art majors. Established by Temple University’s Tyler School of Art in the 1960s, Temple-Rome offers a variety of upper-level studio courses in painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and graphic design, as well as art history courses from ancient to modern. No Italian language is required.

Jim Sawyer, a representative of the Temple-Rome program, will be on campus Tuesday, March 19. He will present a brief introduction to the program and answer questions in the Resource Room (Room 102), Visual Arts Building, at 11:15 a.m. and again at 2:30 p.m. Mr. Sawyer will also be available to speak with students from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. in 121 Borland Building. 

The application deadline for study abroad in spring 2014 is April 1, 2013. This is a great opportunity to hear what Temple-Rome has to offer and to consider your study abroad options.
