Taking graduate classes at Temple University Fort Washington

Graduate Programs

You don't have to go far to get far

Whether you are in the initial stages of considering graduate schools or are presently enrolled in a degree program at Temple University, you have embarked on the exciting next leg of your life adventure.

As a graduate professional education center, Temple University Fort Washington offers several of Temple's world-class graduate programs at a convenient suburban location. Fort Washington houses Temple graduate programs in Pharmaceutical Regulatory Affairs/Quality Assurance (RA/QA) and Pharmaceutics.

When returning to the classroom, working adults often wonder whether they can juggle a full-time career with family commitments and still find time to attend class and study. Temple University Fort Washington seeks to make programs such as RA/QA as convenient as possible for working professionals.

The campus is specially designed to meet the educational needs of adult students and offers its classes in the evenings and on weekends. During the week, most of the programs at Fort Washington begin after 6 p.m., which takes into account the schedules of typical working adults, and there are several weekend sections available. Since classes are offered throughout the year, they may start in the fall, spring, or during the summer.

Students at Fort Washington have the opportunity to start their programs as either admitted students in a specific degree program or as non-degree seeking students — students who have not registered for a specific program. This gives students the opportunity to determine which course of study is the best fit for them. Certificate programs of five or six courses in several fields also provide students the ability to obtain specific skill/knowledge sets without completing a full degree.

Fort Washington students also have the opportunity to explore graduate programs and certificates at Temple University Ambler, just five minutes away.
