The Declaration of Independence. The United States Constitution. Temple University. What do they all have in common? Each calls Philadelphia home, and the birthplace of the nation is the perfect setting for students to pursue American Studies degrees. The study of America is the study of us, and we’re not even close to finished making new headlines. As our students continue learning about the moments that gave birth to this great nation and saw it grow, they’ll continue America’s tale here at Temple and wherever they go next. Read their stories below and please contact us if you have an American Studies story of your own you think we should tell.
