Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2006

I feel my college experience helped me become selfless, community-minded, and forward thinking.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

Temple University's Fox School of Business provides a well-rounded undergraduate education for Accounting majors and exposure to recruiters from many accounting firms, including the Big 4, national accounting firms, and regional firms. Its Master of Accountancy program, on the other hand, doesn't really provide a great value added for the money ($30,000 for one year). You'd be better off buying a Becker subscription on your own and fulfilling the extra 30 credits some way else.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2018

Quality program and quality faculty. Highly competitive and praised trial advocacy program. Needs to offer more of the same classes offered in the day to night students. Also, needs to follow some of the other leading law schools and offer more transactional classes.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

I am active duty military and due to moving constantly, looked at online programs. Through months of research and questioning, I settled on 4 online programs, I was accepted into my top two with were UNC and Temple U. I ultimately accepted Temple due to the sincerity and attention I received throughout the process as well as them being the #1 online MBA program. I am constantly satisfied with their online program and highly recommend it. I am not a fan of college personally, but through Temples online program, I am starting to accept being back in college. I always receive prompt responses from faculty if I have a question and a professor even stayed online for an additional two hours past class end time (10PM) to assist students. The classes are at night time to accommodate working individuals. I highly recommend Temple University.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 1997

Temple's Physical Therapy program is top notch. I graduated with experience from my clinical affiliations, passed my boards, and had a job in a few weeks. As a working professional I still meet individuals from Temple working in the field of Physical Therapy as the network in the Philadelphia area is very strong. I would do it again at Temple University for sure. My professors are still people who I consider mentors, and individuals to look up to. I am attending a DHSc program so I can teach other PT students, like my Temple Professors taught me.

Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Temple University is the kind of school you can feel proud to tell people you attend. Prior to applying for a graduate program here, I had several friends who attended Temple (both as undergraduate and graduate students) who had many positive things to say about their experiences at Temple. During my research searching for a graduate program that was right for me, I came across many websites who touted Temple as being among the best in the field. For that and many other reasons, Temple was my first choice school for my graduate career. Upon receiving my letter of acceptance, I could not wait to tell everybody around me. Most universities will tell you that they are diverse. No one wants to admit that they have poor representation of minority students. But Temple is truly diverse, you just have to visit the campus in order to see that. Right in the heart of Philadelphia, it boasts many different nearby restaurants and food trucks, events, and a multitude of diverse programs and clubs/organizations that you can join as a student. The staff at Temple are responsive. Emails do not go unanswered for more than a few days and rarely even that long. When I was having issues registering I thought I would have to go to campus to speak with someone about the issue but to my surprise my email was answered not only quickly but with concern and helpful directions. Temple is also known for a lot of the groundbreaking research that is happening there and for programs that have been put in place to help better the city of Philadelphia and its many residents. I am proud to be a Temple University student and you will be proud too.

Degree: Information Assurance
Graduation Year: 2017

Temple University's School of Pharmacy Regulatory Affairs and Quality Assurance MS Program has launched me into academic and professional success. Upon acceptance into the program, due to it's reputation for excellence, I was able to land a job closer to home and away from the lab bench and into the office in Quality Assurance! Within a year, the skills I've gained throughout the program formed me into an ideal employee allowing for a promotion into my field of passion, Regulatory Affairs. And I wouldn't have even known it was my passion, if it wasn't for the program at Temple! The mix of online and in-class schedule allows me to choose what is right for me without having to compromise my full-time position. I am on track to graduate my program by the end of 2017 and am delighted to see what possibilities the completion of the degree is certain to offer!

Degree: Information Assurance
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently a Masters Degree program student at Temple University for the Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs Program. All of the instructors serve as a very valuable resources as most had advance degrees and serve as managers and directors in the field. The administrators are dependable as they are always there to help you through the process of applying, staying on top of coursework and throughout graduation. You are not left to "fend" for yourself with this program as most professors in this program are graduates from the program and are able to network effectively with other students. Overall the Temple QA/RA program is a great program and a worthy investment for your career.

Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2018

One positive feature of this program is a fostering of creativity. There is very little wiggle room for new ideas and radical thought, and so one must search for any little crack in assignment perimeters so as to dress one's message in politically savvy validity. The same aspect which yields a positive feature holds its own in the negative column. There is very little room for innovative thought, and professors are not inclined to support lines of thought which do not align with that of their own. While in this environment one is afforded the opportunity to hone in on one's craftiness, a more efficient means of exploration and radical progression for philosophy is an environment which fosters such aims.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2017

Shortage of mid-career faculty, somewhat divided between new career and probably-retiring-soon. Faculty very supportive. School's reputation, especially for safety, is not great - but anyone with common sense who is not a racist will be fine. It's a city - be respectful.
