How can I double major at Temple University?
Temple University
Double majoring is something a student chooses to do after being admitted and enrolling. The student must obtain prior approval from both schools or colleges. One department must be declared the primary department for the purpose of registration and college graduation requirements. Students considering a double major across colleges should ask academic advisors in both colleges about college policies related to choosing the primary department.

Temple University is a great and diverse experience. There are many courses to offer and it it located right in the heart of North Philadelphia. As an out-of-state student, the cost of attendance is burdensome, but if you have the funds and/or opportunity, Temple University is the way to go.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The price.

Temple does a spectacular job at bringing in recruiters and providing ample opportunities for students to network. The newly constructed library is very impressive. There are multiple levels and areas to work and even has a coffee shop on the bottom floor. My favorite place to work, however, is the tech. This is a building with a humungous workplace with about a hundred computers where you can work next to friends, group members, or by yourself. Temple is also on the path with the main subway system in Philadelphia and provides very easy access to Center City and opportunities to explore the city as a whole. Overall Temple has been a great experience for me and I would definitely encourage students, in particular business students, to go there.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The level of quality of some of the gen-ed classes was very similar to high-school level classes I have taken, and therefore I would want to see a change in professors' teaching methods.

The teachers are very involved with the subject and want the best for the students.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The workload for the architecture department can become a little overwhelming

Temple has amazing professors who are very willing to help you in your academic and post-graduate career if you are also willing to reach out to them and/or build connections with them. However, the friends I have made at Temple are what really made my experience at Temple worth it. There are so many different ways of making friends, whether it is in clubs/organizations, in your classes, in greek life, and more!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I found how Temple dealt with COVID-19 a bit annoying. With thousands of people losing their jobs or getting their hours cut, we still had to pay the regular price of tuition, without access to all of the services and buildings—such as peer mentoring, the TECH Center, and the gym. Temple also kept pushing the deadline for vaccines and did not put a firm foot down on encouraging their students to get vaccinated.



I like that time is in a major city, with tons of events and things to do all year long.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Some departments are better than others. Most teachers want you to succeed so they’re always willing to help. But some teachers here shouldn’t have a job and are terrible. Won’t learn anything and they are rude.
