Global Studies News

We are all global citizens, with economics, society, language, media and more being shared and shifted the world over. Here you can learn more about the lives of the students, faculty and alumni who’ve dedicated their time at Temple University to the pursuit of exploring those connections through our Global Studies program. And if you have an idea for a story of your own you think we should tell, let us know! Global Studies students are challenged by the faculty to think about big-picture international issues, to experience new cultures and to learn new languages. The academic research and study produced brings new ideas that are applicable outside the classroom to make advancements on the world stage.
