Continuing Education & Summer Sessions

Learning can be an invigorating experience no matter your age, educational background or situation in life. Temple offers a host of courses and programs for those seeking college admission, professional development or simply thirsting for knowledge.

Continuing Studies

The Office of Continuing Studies is the best place to start if you want to pursue your educational interests, but are not enrolled in a degree program. Our students take courses for a variety of reasons, including working toward college admission, professional development, and personal enrichment. Advisors are available to guide you through the process of enrolling in Temple credit courses on a non-degree basis. Learn more about continuing your studies at Temple.

Noncredit Programs

Enhance your skills. Pursue a passion. Expand your knowledge. Challenge your mind. These are just a few of the reasons to take noncredit courses at Temple. Conveniently scheduled courses are offered in person and online, and are taught by engaging instructors with real-world experience. We offer programs in several categories:

Professional Development and Licensure programs in real estate, medicine, dentistry, podiatry, law, physical therapy, and others allow you to maintain your professional license or start a new profession. Temple also offers a wide variety of courses, certificate programs and online learning options that can help you prepare for a different job or get ahead in your current career.

Personal Enrichment and Community Education will allow you to explore new interests in music or art. Expand your skills through offerings at our Fort Washington, Ambler and Center City campuses, as well as through extensive programs offered by the Pan-African Studies Community Education Program (PASCEP).

Youth Programs are offered year-round and provide learning and performance opportunities for all ages. Students can explore visual arts and music and performance as well as science and technology through our many summer camp programs. High school students can prepare for college with study skills, SAT reviews, and creative writing.

Intensive English Language programs offer English classes to non-native speakers who wish to improve reading, writing, and speaking skills. Classes are offered at Main Campus in Philadelphia or at the Temple University, Japan Campus, in Tokyo.

Your education never stops with our Lifelong Learning programs for adults over 50 years of age. Lifelong Learning is possible through our Osher Lifelong Learning program at the Center City campus and our Lifelong Learning Society at Ambler Campus.
