Traveling Abroad was put on hold since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, this year Temple’s Study Abroad Program lets the student body know that they’re open for business.
Maureen Gordon, Director of Education Abroad & Overseas Campuses, said:
“So study abroad has changed since COVID, since the pandemic hit, and that requires a lot more planning from the Education Abroad perspective and making sure that our risk assessment is taking into account how the pandemic is playing out in the local country.”
Although some countries are not open to students yet, studying abroad offers the Temple community a diverse selection of locations for them to travel to this year. Some of the countries include France, Germany, Spain, and South Korea.
“So really, this year is all about reestablishing where we are, getting the word out that you can go, and helping students prepare and choose the program that’s right for them,” Maureen Gordon said.
And if taking classes abroad doesn’t interest you, there are plenty of other opportunities for you to look into instead.
Klein GO’s Gabby Verzella says that there are also a lot of international internships that Temple students would be able to take part in as well. Also, they stated that these would “Look really good on a portfolio piece.”
