Graduate Admissions

A transformative process

As a graduate student at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture, you’ll be challenged to exceed your own expectations as a creator and researcher by an inclusive, inspirational community who share your curiosity and desire to effect positive social change.

You’ll have access to a faculty of accomplished practitioners who offer one-on-one mentorship and support; the resources of Temple, a large research university (including programs designed for graduate students such as the Teaching in Higher Education Certificate and the new Cultural Analytics Certificate); unparalleled facilities and equipment; the opportunities of Philadelphia, an affordable and vibrant arts center strategically located between New York and Washington, D.C.; and the cultural richness of a university that’s recognized as a leader in diversity, social responsibility and community engagement.

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. We invite you to visit and apply and join our dynamic community.
