Dr. Shannon J. O'Brien
Recognizing that not all students can or should declare an academic major upon entering college, Temple University established University Studies — the academic home for students who have not yet decided on a school/college or major. University Studies is not a degree-granting college. Rather, it is an academic unit that exists to help students explore academic options. All students must declare a major in one of Temple's degree-granting undergraduate schools and colleges upon completion of 60 credits, including any credits transferred from other institutions.
University Studies offers undeclared students a variety of services and programs to help them select an appropriate major. Students can use online resources in our Academic Information Center to research majors and careers and can participate in student success and academic exploration workshops held throughout the year. Upon declaring a major, students are required to fulfill the school/college and department requirements of that program.
University Studies does not grant degrees and students cannot graduate with an "undeclared" curriculum designation.
