Temple Sociology

Research · Teaching · Social Change



One of the great advantages of Temple University is its location in one of the most vibrant and revitalizing cities in the US. At Temple sociology, we take full advantage of this geographic advantage and teach our students to do the same.


Here we offer our collective thoughts about the city and the larger metropolitan area and includes links and maps to help you familiarize yourself with Philadelphia and all that it has to offer. Whether you are considering applying to one of our programs or you are a die hard native Philadelphian, you'll want to spend a few moments exploring this part of the site.
