Temple University’s Pre-college Workshops invite students entering grades 9, 10, 11, or 12 to experience Temple University academics while exploring potential college majors through non-credit workshops. Students in Temple's Pre-college Workshops will

  • attend two non-credit workshops (one AM and one PM, topics vary depending on dates),
  • develop their interests in various academic fields,
  • build their confidence and sense of independence,
  • engage in interactive, project-based learning, and
  • make new friends and build community with other students from diverse backgrounds.

Temple Pre-college Workshops will have three (3) two-week sessions online for summer 2021.

  • June 28–July 9, 2021
  • July 12–July 23, 2021
  • July 26–August 6, 2021

Learn with others online.

Your program will be a mix of live ("synchronous") sessions with your instructors, and time to work on your own or in a small group ("asynchronous"). Every workshop is designed to be as interactive as possible. Your non-credit workshops are designed to introduce you to the key concepts of various academic fields through project-based learning, often through work in small groups.

Participation in this program requires access to a device (computer or tablet) that is connected to reliable, high-speed internet. While participation on a smartphone is possible, the ability to interact with others will be more limited and is thus not recommended.
