REGISTER FOR THE GRADUATE OPEN HOUSE AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY FORT WASHINGTON
Where will the future of Ambler’s current and prospective students lead?
Whether their interest is working with the landscape or working in a high-rise corporate office, at Temple University Ambler students can start their road to careers that will last a lifetime.
At Ambler, it’s all about the partnership between the student and the University. Temple meets you where you are and your hard work takes you to new heights.
In addition to being home to Temple’s “green” programs — Community and Regional Planning, Landscape Architecture, and Horticulture — Ambler offers students access to all of Temple’s academic paths and faculty who are noted experts in their fields.
Your first steps towards your professional career, graduate school, and your life’s goals can all begin with a visit to Temple’s conveniently located suburban campuses, which have steadily established a framework of programs and services necessary for students who often have several other life priorities to attend to — work, spouse, family, community. Nearly half of the student population at the Temple University Ambler and Fort Washington campuses is 25 years of age or older.
Temple University Ambler, 580 Meetinghouse Road, will hold a Summer Open House on Tuesday, August 14, beginning at 10 a.m. A Graduate Open House will take place at Temple University Fort Washington, 425 Commerce Drive, on August 14, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Ambler — already a full-service campus for every student — has the infrastructure in place to provide “one stop shopping” for re-entry students seeking an undergraduate or graduate degree to advance their careers or simply for personal enrichment, said William Parshall, Executive Director of Temple University Ambler.
“We are Temple,” he said. “We have world-renowned professors and comprehensive programs.”
For adults interested in returning to school to start or complete a degree, Ambler and Fort Washington provide a full range of possibilities, including numerous bachelor’s and master’s degree programs and the opportunity to begin courses for all of the University’s more than 130 majors.
Temple University Fort Washington is “a very adult-friendly campus” according to Marylou Delizia, Director of Temple University Fort Washington.
“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,” she said. “Our graduate programs are completely organized around the needs of adult students. The MBA and QA/RA (Quality Assurance/Regulatory Affairs) programs have proven particularly successful with professionals.”
At the Summer Open House, prospective students will have the opportunity to meet with Temple University admissions staff, faculty, administrators, and students; learn about admission criteria, financial aid, academic advising, day and evening degree programs; talk with a variety of department representatives during an information fair, including representatives from various majors; and take a campus tour.
At Graduate Open House, visitors will receive valuable information about graduate degrees in Business Administration (Professional MBA and MS programs); Community and Regional Planning (MS); Education (MSEd); Educational Administration (MEd); Landscape Architecture (MLArch); Pharmaceutical Quality Assurance/ Regulatory Affairs (MS); Pharmaceutics (non-thesis MS), and Social Work (MSW). Information sessions, program advising, and information about non-credit programs for career enhancement will also be part of the event.
Fall classes begin Monday, August 27. Take the next step! Take action! Your future is about to start. Are you ready?
