Division of University Studies: Undeclared Option

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 which exists to help students explore academic options. All students must declare a major in one of Temple’s degree-granting undergraduate schools and college 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 print and on-line resources in our Academic Information Library (Curtis Hall, Room 112) to research majors and careers, and can participate in student success and academic exploration workshops held throughout the year. University Studies also maintains a file on curricular requirements of all Temple undergraduate majors.

University Studies does not grant degrees and students cannot graduate with an “undeclared” or a “pre-health professions” curriculum designation.

Upon declaring a major, students are required to fulfill the school/college and department requirements of that program. Because majors can stipulate particular courses they want their students to take in a Core area, a student who has already met a Core requirement with another course may still be required to take the course designated by the major.
