For Temple students who may not have the opportunity to travel abroad, there are various ways to engage in global activities on campus and in the classroom.
All undergraduate and transfer students are required to take the course entitled World Society as a general education requirement. Beyond the introductory course university-wide, global curriculum has been developed in individual schools and colleges to provide a more in-depth understanding of international subject matter as it pertains to specialized areas.
Outside of the classroom, the Global Living Learning Community was created at Temple as a collaborative effort between the offices of Student Affairs and International Affairs to provide domestic and international students with an opportunity to build life-long relationships that will connect them both socially and intellectually. As participants of the Global LLC, international and domestic students will collaborate on projects on and off-campus to promote globalization. Joining international student organizations is another way for Temple students to learn about and experience different cultures, as well as meet new people.
International opportunities may be more feasible for some students after graduation. Temple University's career center has a collection of global career resources which provide information on international internships, volunteer service opportunities, teaching positions, and careers abroad.
