The foundation of education at Temple is based on core classes along with core requirements for majors. Temple has a goal for each student to be well rounded. Temple has some leniency toward academic criteria, offering fun classes in topics such as event planning, golf, SCUBA diving, gymnastics, and Shakespeare. When scheduling classes online, be prepared to wake up at the crack of dawn so that you will get into the classes you need. Most students are not sure what they want to study, and it’s not uncommon for some to change their majors; however, if you change your major, it can be a setback when it comes to finishing on time.
Unfortunately, a lot of professors at Temple have accents that tend to bore you half to death, but there are numerous tutorial sessions and workshops available to help students. There are mixed feelings about the teachers. Many feel the staff is not enthused about the topics they are teaching, but overall, students feel that the teachers aren’t that bad. Get to know your professors, and ask them for assistance if you need it. Students seem to focus more on the quality of the professors than class material. The great thing about Temple is that, because of its size, people you interview with for employment after college know someone who went to Temple or have gone to Temple themselves. The Temple name carries weight in the realm of business, communications, and sciences.
