    Academic Program Changes Effective Fall 2020

    Reflective of our commitment to continually improve learning opportunities for our students and to deliver programs that address discipline-based knowledge in a broad, diverse, and changing environment, the College of Education and Human Development has modified the program requirements for several academic programs. These changes, as approved by Temple's Board of Trustees, are effective for students beginning their program in Fall 2020 and beyond.  To ensure students can adequately plan their course of study, the college is posting the revised program requirements. This information will remain available on this site until the updated 2020-2021 Temple Bulletin is published in August 2020.
