Our online classes combine the immediate exchange of knowledge of a traditional classroom course with the convenience and flexibility of online learning. As long as you have a laptop or computer with a high-speed connection, you can attend class at home, in your office, or on the road.

Students must purchase a microphone headset and a camera to participate in our online courses. This enables your instructors and other students to see and hear you during class meetings, enhancing the experience for everyone in the class.

We use a synchronous, online platform since class dialogue and interaction are so critical to understanding quality and regulatory principles. Our online classes offer the same outstanding curriculum as our live classes at Fort Washington and are taught by the same instructors. To find out more or to ask for a brochure, email qara@temple.edu.

Temple’s RA and QA graduate program is also happy to videoconference courses directly to pharmaceutical companies. Contact qara@temple.edu for more information.
