Temple Dublin Summer 2007
Art Direction Track
"I have always wanted to study abroad, but it wasn't until I saw Temple's Dublin Program that I knew where. Ireland's tone was so vastly different from that of the United States. The opportunity to be exposed to another culture in a learning environment ensured that I took as much as possible away with me when I left. During the summer month I spent there, studying media, I fell in love with their way of life. Studying abroad is something I recommend everyone do, and Temple Dublin was an experience I will never forget and often miss."
Study Away Experience
The School of Communications and Theater offers study-abroad opportunities that provide students with valuable international experience. These studies are open to qualified students from other universities and colleges in order to foster intellectual exchange.
London is a rich cultural and intellectual hub for the student of mass media and theater. Approximately 20-40 students per semester attend Temple’s London program and complete internships during the fall at professionally relevant British or American television, film, and video production houses; public relations and advertising agencies; magazines; and theater front offices.
During this month-long summer program, students encounter the old Dublin and the new Dublin. They study how a distinctive national identity emerged from Ireland’s literature and from long-fought political revolution. They also experience a modern metropolis with an increasingly multicultural population, a sophisticated European city that is an incubator for artistic and multimedia innovation.
