London is a rich cultural and intellectual hub for students of mass media and communication. Approximately 20 to 40 students attend SMC’s London program each semester and are led by an SMC faculty member. You can participate in an internship during either the fall or spring semester at film and video production houses, magazines, public relations and advertising agencies, and websites. You can also take a six-week course, led by a Temple faculty member, that focuses on a different theme each year.
Regarded as North America’s only truly “global” city, New York City is unparalleled in its richness of art, culture and history. This summer program provides an in-depth look at the communication-related components of the city by focusing on its institutions, neighborhoods and organizations. You’ll take two courses on those topics and have the option to take an additional course, for variable credit, as a self-directed independent study or internship. And on Saturdays, you can explore New York with other students throughout the summer and should expect to spend at least one additional day there completing your course assignments.
Studying in South Africa will expose you not only to a richly diverse learning experience, but also to a fascinating culture spanning everything from bustling urban districts and cosmopolitan dining and shopping centers, to stunning vistas marked by breathtaking natural beauty and abundant wildlife. During the summer program, you can combine adventure and academics with immersion into aspects of that country that most South Africans never experience. This unique study away program offers you the opportunity to produce journalistic and documentary narratives, or a body of photographic work or research that focuses on South Africa.
The Global Internship Program can provide you with both academic and professional work experience in your chosen field of study. Each summer, students spend approximately three weeks in May on Temple’s Main Campus completing Intercultural Communication in the Workplace prior to departing for full-time internships in major cities throughout the world, including Barcelona; Boston; Chicago; Dublin; Hong Kong; London; Los Angeles; Miami; New York City; Paris; and Washington, D.C.
