Your college journey can begin before you leave high school! Rising high school juniors and seniors may apply now for the fall 2023 semester to Temple University’s Science and Mathematics Scholars Program.
About the Program
The Science and Mathematics Scholars Program is a unique collaboration between two colleges within Temple University – the College of Science and Technology and University College – where local high school students (also known as pre-college students) can come together to study at the Ambler Campus.
Students will complete 12 credits of college coursework in mathematics and science as part of the program. Once the 12 credits are successfully completed, students will earn a Certificate in Specialized Studies in Science and Mathematics, and may continue taking higher level university science and mathematics courses if they choose. A mentor/academic coach will be assigned to each cohort to help ensure student success and enable student access to support services.
Classes prepare students for future careers in a variety of fields such as health sciences, legal professions, science education, science-related business and technology, and research, and also prepares students for graduate school.
