Honors courses are the major component to successfully completing the Honors Program requirements. Temple students can select Honors courses to fulfill General Education requirements, take courses required by a major, or take courses just because they sound intriguing--courses are the key to academic exploration and discovery!
These classes are small, taught as seminars in which students and professors challenge each other to think hard and creatively. Honors class discussions are like the best conversations—we don’t want them to end. Our courses often reflect the academic passions of Temple’s favorite professors, build upon community opportunities in Philadelphia, or are one-of-a-kind chances for our students to gain invaluable, hands-on experience in their field of choice (or in fields they didn't even know about!).
