Temple University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (33)
The department of Urban Education at Temple contains a faculty that is both cognizant of the real world challenges facing students and exemplary in their field as researchers and educators. I feel that the courses I have taken in this department have prepared me for teaching in the urban setting. When I compare myself to other teachers who have not had the benefit of this program, I see I wide gap in knowledge and undersanding of both mico and macro level issues. I have also networked with teachers and educators in my field in a way that have benefitted my career and my personal life. I wouldn't study any place else!
I attended Temple for 2 years after transferring from another university. the College of Education's website can sometimes be out of date, so it is best to seek important information from advisers in-person. However, beyond that, I was very pleased with the quality and notoriety of Temple's secondary education program and the university as a whole.
Bad neighborhood, but safe campus. Easy access to campus. Supportive teachers. Informative.
I've enjoyed attending Temple University because of its location and convenience to my home. There are some great professors that I have had the chance to take classes with. Also, the campus has been undergoing major renovations and improvements, thus making the entire university more updated, modern, and technologically-advanced.
Had a lot of fun and met some incredible people. Sadly, I didn't pay enough attention to the professional aspect and didn't end up in my field of study. If I were to do it over, I would create more of a balance of the social and educational aspects that this great university offers.
Temple University is a large university with a smaller on-campus feel. Depending on your interests, this school can provide you with a lot of experience outside of school because it is so close to downtown Philadelphia. It also has a large alumni network in Philly which makes getting a job in Philly easier.
Going to college was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was able to study a subject I loved, and for the first time in my life I got good grades because I was passionate about what I was studying. I learned to be independent, learned time management, and met some fantastic people who will be my lifelong friends.
Temple was a very good school. The learning environment and teaching staff were a great influence on my experience.
Many working professionals, seeing as classes were held in the evenings and/or had online components to them too.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Temple. It is a diverse and humble school that really caters to everyone. While some of its institutions, such as the financial aid office, were not as efficient as they could be, Temple always made me feel at home. I had excellent professors and learned an excellent mix of "book knowledge" and "street knowledge". I loved the honors psychology program and the general university honors programs. They provided a small-school feeling with all the benefits of the big university. I do wish, however, that there were more counselling options and experiences in the psychology program, as opposed to research experiences. The research psychology aspect at Temple is very well developed, but it would be nice to offer jobs/internships/senior projects more catered to those interested in clinical psychology.
