Classrooms and sidewalks are again bustling at Temple, but this semester some new graduate students in the College of Public Health aren’t stepping foot on campus at all. The college is launching three new online graduate programs this year, bringing together ambitious students from around the world.
The Department of Kinesiology’s clinical doctorate of athletic training (CDAT) is now hosted entirely online—one of the first programs of its kind nationwide. And this fall the college introduced online options for the master of public health (MPH) and master of social work (MSW) programs, which are now accepting applications for students to begin coursework in fall 2017.
“Unlike other universities, our online programs are taught by the same renowned Temple faculty who lead on-campus courses—meaning that students get more flexibility without giving up the expertise and attention of our dedicated professors,” said Jennifer Ibrahim, associate dean for academic affairs for the college. “We are working hard to meet students where they are and when they are ready to start their educational experience, by offering online courses at the graduate level with the same outstanding quality as our in-person courses.”
