Since its founding by Dr. Russell H. Conwell in 1884, Temple University has grown tremendously. Chartered as Temple College in 1888 and incorporated as Temple University in 1907, Temple became a state-related institution in Pennsylvania’s Commonwealth System of Higher Education in 1965.
Temple University is one of the most diverse and comprehensive public research institutions in the United States. Total student enrollment is approximately 37,000, of which more than 9,000 are graduate and professional students. Programs are offered at four regional campuses, including Main Campus, the Health Sciences Center Campus, and Center City Campus in Philadelphia, as well as the major suburban campus in Ambler, PA. We also operate an education center in Harrisburg, PA, and maintain international campuses in Tokyo, Japan, and Rome, Italy.
Temple University is designated one of only 99 public and private universities in the nation as “RU/H: Research Universities (high research activity)” by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching in its 2010 classification. Research is central to both master’s and doctoral programs at Temple University. Through research and other creative activities, faculty and students are able to contribute to the development of new knowledge.
Through various schools and colleges, Temple University offers more than 250 master’s and doctoral degree programs and approximately 70 graduate certificates.
