Temple is nothing but a business! Everyone is treated like a number and flushed through the system. The only way to get anything done (including confirming financial aid, enrollment in classes, or a required internship) is to harass harass harass the departments and the provost - really, should you need the provost to intervene on everything just to get a job done? Professors seem to be hit or miss. I've had some professors with accents s thick no student could understand them, and then the professor was offended when asked to repeat things; Other professors were great and supported different learning styles, connected curriculum to the real-world and employment, but of course they were visiting. And their Saturday MSW? doesn't really exist. Yes you can take most of your courses on Saturdays but every summer you will have to hoof it to Main Campus in ghetto N Philly for your concentration courses, would have been nice to know. All in all, I would not recommend this program to anyone unless they like drama and hassle…myself, I don't have time for it and will be happy when I graduate.
