Who We Are
Who are we? We're civic-minded and globally conscious. We're creative thinkers, doers and risk-takers. We’re not just in the classroom. We are out in the community. We don’t study to pass a test. We work to change the world. We have strong opinions and we are encouraged to share them. We want answers. We create real solutions to real-world problems.
That’s why we came to Temple.
We don’t settle for the superficial — we closely examine each piece of available information in order to make decisions and create solutions.
Across the college, students in every major scrutinize data to form their conclusions. We’re on the cutting edge of research — both in the laboratory and in the classroom — and we embrace the crucial role that data, analytics and statistics play in a comprehensive education in the sciences and humanities.

We know that stories are humanity’s shared currency — and we relish the chance to share our stories with the world. A good narrative reveals meaning about who we are, where we came from and where we’re going. That’s why our courses are designed to teach you how to reason, analyze and persuade. We are gifted writers who ask complex questions that break down walls and transport people to other places.
