Our faculty is the most important asset of Temple University.  As a major national research university, one of the benefits of a graduate education is that you are taught by faculty who are actively engaged in research within the discipline.  The act of pursuing the rigors of intellectual curiosity is one of the most noble objectives of the modern university.  We believe that all research, be it artistic, scientific, or humanistic, informs the classroom in a powerfully dynamic way.

Many of our faculty are recognized as leaders within their disciplines.   A number of Temple's schools and colleges are nationally ranked, but also our faculty members have received honors such as Fulbright Fellowships, Pew Grants,
