Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2018

As a student, I thoroughly enjoy Temple University and the GDC program, it is an experience I cannot match elsewhere! Temple University's Globalization and Development Communication (GDC) program is a one-year Masters of Science course that provides in-field experience to give students a competitive edge upon entrance into the job market. The GDC program challenges students to get out of the library and work in the real world. As a student, I am conducting field research of non-profits in the city of Philadelphia. Through my research findings I provide suggestions to improve the organizations' operations. In addition, GDC students are given autonomy over their choice of course work by creating their own specializations. I created my specialization in Latin American Affairs. A few of GDC's professors are Latin Americanists, or experts on Latin America, and connect students to organizations in Latin America. Access to professors' networks connects students with organizations based in Latin America or Africa. Professors also connect students to development professionals at the United Nations as well as other reputable development organizations in the US. Professors are passionate about their research topics and make ample time to discuss and help students generate their own research ideas. The cohort experience is integral to success in GDC. Students work closely together, fostering mutual professional development. Temple University itself is a hub of creativity that promotes innovative ideas. As a student, I have been introduced to various perspectives on the practice of international development such as the use of development in communication, environmental science, etc. While universities in development hubs such DC & NY might glorify organizations such as the UN, World Bank, IMF, GDC provides students with a critical look into these organizations by evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of the organizations. This enables students to enter the development field with complete information on these organizations and students learn to weigh the pros and cons of the work any organization does. Students will leave the GDC program with added experience in the development field such as managing, monitoring, and evaluating development projects, and creating public campaigns. The GDC Masters program refined my skills by making me more competitive as a professional in my field.

Temple University Social Work program had quite a few good professors and courses. The majority of the program wasnt very informative. There were some exceptions but not many. The student body did not represent a diversity of people. Not many black males present.

I am currently an enrolled at the medical school, Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. I believe this program is going to help me to be the best doctor that I can be in order to help make my community a better place. I feel like a perfect fit here and I know that anyone would do well to come here.

Temple's Executive MBA program offers an accommodating schedule, an interactive learning experience and optional international participation. The program is a platform for powerful networking opportunities, diversity of thinking and executive level learning.

I attended at a satellite campus, and I don't feel that our needs were adequately addressed. I'm not sure what the experience would be like on the main campus, however.

Graduation Year: 2014

I loved Temple. The professors were so passionate about the field, and that is actually the reason I chose Temple instead of the other option in Florida. Each class was filled with bright students and professionals that were excited, intelligent, and from all walks of life. The area where Temple was located was not the greatest . . . but it was definitely filled with security and had all kinds of security available to those in need. I loved my experience there and continue to keep in touch with some of the professors and friends that I made during my time there.
