How to Apply

To apply, submit Temple’s online graduate application along with an application fee of $60. 

All College of Liberal Arts candidates must have completed their bachelor’s degree in a related field before applying to a graduate program. However, in the past, students without a related bachelor’s degree have performed well in the program. Therefore, an applicant’s entire application package will be considered.
