For students who would benefit from extra support, the Intellectual Heritage program offers tutoring. And if you’re looking for an extra challenge or activity, Diamond Peer Teaching, the Temple Undergraduate Research Forum, or the Creative Works Symposium could be just what you need.

IH Tutoring

Remote tutoring is now available for students taking Intellectual Heritage I and II. Reach out to or to make a plan to meet (via Zoom, over the phone, over email) to discuss the readings and talk through your assignments.

Diamond Peer Teaching

The Diamond Peer Teachers (DPT) Program is a competitive program providing undergraduates at Temple the opportunity to experience the challenges and rewards of college-level teaching, to develop their own pedagogical skills by working closely with their faculty mentors, and to provide supplemental instruction in lower-level and GenEd courses.

Intellectual Heritage faculty have frequently served as mentors of Diamond Peer Teachers. Interested students should approach the IH instructor with whom they would like to work.

Temple Undergraduate Research Forum and Creative Works Symposium

The Temple Undergraduate Research Forum (TURF-CreWS) offers undergraduate students the opportunity to present original research or creative work to the wider Temple community and beyond–friends, family, peers, professors and more– at a one-day symposium in the spring of each academic year. TURF-CreWS’ goal is to inspire students to extend the rigorous intellectual and creative work they begin in the classroom out to the wider world, and to provide them with experience presenting their ideas in a conference setting, where like-minded individuals join to “analyze, critique and advise their social, ideological, or cultural communities”.

Student work born out of the projects and assignments undertaken in IH courses is well-suited for this forum, and our instructors welcome the chance to mentor students interested in taking their scholarship to the next level.

Study Abroad: The Global Good

The Global Good’s four-week undergraduate seminars offer students the opportunity to complete Intellectual Heritage II over the summer, in locations around the world. These courses pair our small seminars with frequent field trips to sites of ancient and modern cultural significance. Previous courses have taken place in Rome, Italy; Oviedo, Spain; and Seoul, South Korea. Summer 2022 programs are being offered in Prague and Seoul.

Remember: you can take IH I and II in any order, when you like. Now you can take it where you like. And when you take IH abroad, you get credit for Gened World Society too.
