ClassicalU has partnered with the Templeton Honors College at Eastern University to offer transferable online graduate credits for designated courses on ClassicalU. Subscribers can earn standalone credits, or apply to Templeton to have credits count toward a Master of Arts in Classical Teaching. Following is a description of the benefits available to you and an overview of the process for registering and taking Templeton graduate courses.
Benefit #1: Earn Standalone Graduate Credits for Templeton Courses on ClassicalU
Several courses on ClassicalU are designated as Templeton Honors College courses. Any ClassicalU subscriber can register to take a Templeton course for graduate credit. All credits are issued by the Templeton Honors College at Eastern University, an accredited college, and are transferable to other accredited colleges across the United States.
Benefit #2: Apply to the MAT Degree Program at Templeton
It is easy to register and take individual Templeton courses on ClassicalU.com for standalone graduate credit as non-degree-earning students. Some of you, however, may also wish to apply to Templeton’s MAT in Classical Teaching degree program, which requires 30 credits. If you are accepted into the MAT program, any Templeton graduate courses you have successfully completed on ClassicalU will count toward your MAT degree.
Please note that at this time, not all of the required courses for the MAT are available on ClassicalU.com. This means that in order to complete the MAT degree, you must complete some courses on site at the Templeton campus in St. Davids, Pennsylvania.
Process for Taking a Templeton Course for Graduate Credit:
- Go to the Course Finder page and select “Graduate Courses.”
- Click on the Templeton graduate course you would like to take and follow the prompts to register for the course.
- Be sure to respond to the e-mail from Templeton Honors College prompting you for tuition payment.
