The Master of Liberal Arts program at Temple University is a member of the Association of Graduate Liberal Studies Programs (AGLSP), an international organization of over 120 institutional members that share a common interest in graduate-level liberal education.


"As a full time high school teacher looking to go back to graduate school, Temple's MLA program allowed me to both pursue my specific interests and take classes at times that were convenient for me.

"From my very first class, I was hooked, and over the next few semesters was able to craft a program that allowed me to explore the intersections of media, popular culture, and education.

"In the end I was able to get both personal enrichment and professional advancement from my time in the MLA program and I will always be grateful for that."

Joshua Weisgrau, former MLA student (High School Teacher)
