Classes size at Temple are just as diverse as the professors that teach them. Ranging in sizes from anywhere between 15 and 300 students, the majors taught at Temple are always assured to give the student exactly what they sign up for. Professors for the most part are always extremely helpful. Not once since entering into my major of Advertising have I not made friends with the professor that has taught my class, giving my key insight to the field that awaits me along with giant networking advantages. The professors here are not just teachers, but links to the outside world awaiting you in your career.

I'm a student in the architecture program here at Temple. While architecture is an intensive program, I've found that the workload is manageable. Our entire architecture class of about 65 is divided into four groups, creating much smaller class sizes and allowing for more individualized learning. While I have had a few lecture classes, both recitation and lab are conducted in small groups. Plus, because I'm in the Honors Program, some of my classes have even been as small as 15 students!
