Studying in London

Since 1969, students from across the U.S. have attended Temple’s London programs, through which they have learned from, and met and networked with, the most accomplished media and communication professionals in British media and theater. They’ve also immersed themselves in the local culture and social scene by visiting London's world-class galleries, markets, museums and parks. Home to more than 8 million people, London is a thriving metropolis with a prominent presence in the fields of media and communication.

    SMC Study Away offers three separate London programs.
