Welcome from the President
Welcome to Temple University. The Undergraduate Bulletin will be a guide to your academic journey here at Temple. I hope that you will find it to be helpful as you embark on an exciting adventure of discovery at the University.
The Bulletin is a guide to the requirements for the core curriculum and completing a major. It is also a window into the vast array of human knowledge; it contains more than 4,500 opportunities to learn about everything from accounting to women's studies. As you browse this catalog, you are sure to find something that will interest you, perhaps something you never expected.
The Bulletin is more than a listing of courses, a description of academic programs and degree requirements, and general information about the services and programs Temple offers. It reflects the breadth and depth of opportunities Temple University has to offer. Temple has a distinguished faculty in 17 schools and colleges and offers 125 undergraduate majors as well as 52 undergraduate minors and 69 concentrations.
Temple also provides many settings in which to learn, including five regional campuses in the greater Philadelphia area, other campuses in Pennsylvania, and sites and programs around the world. In addition to the flagship Main Campus, the Philadelphia campuses include the Health Sciences Center, the Center City Campus in Philadelphia, a major suburban campus at Temple University at Ambler, and the Tyler School of Art, a suburban art campus in Elkins Park. The University has education centers in Harrisburg and Fort Washington and international campuses in Tokyo and Rome. Temple also offers undergraduate programs throughout the world: Brazil, Costa Rica, France, Germany, Ghana, Great Britain, Greece, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Scotland and Spain, as well as opportunities to participate in study abroad programs with partner colleges and universities.
Temple has much to offer you. Please take advantage of the Undergraduate Bulletin as you plan the journey that lies before you.
