Graduate Admissions

A transformative process

As a graduate student at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture at Temple University, you will be pushed to exceed your own expectations as a creator and researcher by a community of scholars who share your curiosity, your focus on positive social change, your desire to achieve your professional goals and your commitment to the transformative power of learning.

Your guides at Tyler will be faculty members—all accomplished practitioners themselves—who will give you one-on-one mentorship and support; and an inclusive group of fellow graduate students (and future collaborators) in a broad range of disciplines that will challenge and inspire you. It’s all about the impact. Alumni of Tyler’s graduate programs have built a legacy of leadership and influence that continues to grow more than eight decades after the school was founded.
