ROME, Italy

Semester/Year STUDY ABROAD Program

Message from the Dean


Hilary L. Link


In the fall of 1989 I set off for seven months of study abroad in Italy; at the time, I could never have predicted how life-changing that experience would prove to be. Nearly 25 years later, I still marvel at how my time studying in Italy continues to have an impact on my education, my career, my friendships, my life choices, and so much more. Ultimately, that time abroad brought me to my current role, working with students embarking on similar adventures and experiences.


It is therefore with great enthusiasm that I invite you to consider studying abroad with Temple University Rome, to experience the culture, art, language, literature and history of la città eterna, to broaden your perspective on your studies, your future career path, where you hope your life will lead you. Since its founding in 1966, Temple University Rome has offered students a welcoming base from which to explore new and old interests, a dynamic atmosphere of academic and artistic engagement, and a gateway to one of the most historically important and visually striking cities in the world. I hope you will take time to learn more about our exceptional courses, student services and cultural engagement with the city.

On behalf of everyone at Temple Rome, I look forward to welcoming you to Rome soon…a presto.

Hilary L. Link, Ph.D.
Dean, Temple University Rome
