We offer a Master of Science in Communication Management program, presented entirely online and offered globally, as well as a number of other degrees which utilize the latest in distance learning technology. 

Whether you’re in Philadelphia or joining Temple from abroad, we’ve got the right type of program for you. We look forward to working with you in finding a passion—and a career—that best suits you.

With a completely virtual program, I’m able to manage my time in the most efficient ways possible. The communication management program truly feels like it was designed for someone like me, who works full time and needs to learn skills that will elevate the career I already have.
