Note: About Summer II / Fall 2020 Program Changes

In response to changes in certification requirements issued by the Pennslyvania Department of Education, the College of Education 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 Summer II 2020 or Fall 2020 and beyond.  To insure students can adequately plan their course of study, the College is posting the revised program requirements.  This information will remain available until the updated 2020-2021 Temple Bulletin is published in August 2020.
