An Urban University Experience

As one of the largest cities on the East Coast, a modern center of industry, and a historically and culturally rich metropolitan destination, Philadelphia is the ideal location for graduate students—and when you attend Temple University, it’s all at your fingertips.

When you conduct research, you'll do so in state-of-the art research centers on campus, and in one of the oldest cities in the country, home to world-renowned archives, libraries and museums. When you need to unwind, you're right in the middle of a bustling urban destination celebrated for its food, art and entertainment. When you plan for your future, you’ll have the professional opportunities only a large city can offer, as well as the personalized support and mentoring necessary for you to thrive at Temple and beyond.
