Graduate student life at Temple is a holistic one. It challenges you to work hard and discover more, but also invites you to interact with like-minded scholars and professionals to build your professional network; engage in the wide array of rich cultural offerings on campus; and be a part of university clubs and local, regional and national organizations.

On Campus

You can meet and engage with professionals and scholars at networking events on Main Campus, Temple’s Center City campus and at events throughout the greater Philadelphia region. You can be part of Temple’s rich art, music and theater scene, with opportunities to browse world-class work at Stella Elkins Tyler Galleries, experience concerts and speaker series, and catch award-winning productions at the Randall Theater and Tomlinson Theater. You will also have access to some of the region’s leading research centers and convenient campus facilities, including the brand new Charles Library, campus recreation and fitness centers, a thoughtful commuter lounge and newly updated TECH Center.
