The Global Good Program

The Global Good's four-week undergraduate seminars offer students the opportunity to complete either Intellectual Heritage I: The Good Life or Intellectual Heritage II: The Common Good, in one of Europe's oldest capitals and cultural hubs. These courses pair small seminars, in which students read and discuss works of enduring philosophical, literary, and social value, with frequent field trips to sites of ancient and modern cultural significance in and around London. The program opens with an orientation session, and all courses are taught by Temple faculty from the U.S. campus with expertise in European culture, history, and literature.
