Join a network of 3,000 students and more than 20,000 alumni while discovering your voice in media and communication.
Temple University’s School of Media and Communication (SMC) prepares students to be analytical, creative and ethical leaders and citizens in a multicultural society. We train students for leadership careers in media and communication, advancing creativity and research in a variety of fields and serving the public need for responsible multimedia communication.
We hold our faculty and students to high standards of academic excellence, and we help the next generation of media experts and teachers pursue their goals within the context of social responsibility. To ensure that all students receive rich, cross-disciplinary learning and professional training, we encourage SMC students to take course work in disciplines outside their home school. Some students choose history and political science as their related areas of interest; others select literature and the arts; still others study business, economics or the social sciences.
Student activities and Study Away programs can provide great supplementary learning experiences, while getting involved in student clubs and other opportunities in the Temple community can help you settle into your life here and make friends.
