American Culture

Courses in American Culture introduce Temple students to the serious study of those aspects of our culture that are uniquely American. Some courses deal with American culture in general, while others focus on particular aspects of American life. A portion of all courses in this category is devoted to the unique experiences, achievements, and contributions of ethnic minorities and women in American life.

Requirement: One 3-credit course from this list.

Note: Core courses no longer offered by departments have been removed from this list, but students who took them will receive Core credit, as indicated in their DARS document. Questions about Core courses can be answered by the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies.
