Temple University was founded in 1884. Temple is administratively divided into 17 colleges and schools. It is perhaps best known for the high quality of the education provided through its many professional schools, such as the Beasley School of Law, the Lewis Katz School of Medicine, the School of Podiatric Medicine, the School of Pharmacy, the Kornberg School of Dentistry, the College of Engineering, and the Tyler School of Art and Architecture.
All in all, Temple prepares the largest body of professional practitioners in the state of Pennsylvania, and one of the largest in the country.
Temple Online offers a wide variety of graduate-level courses organized into 15 master’s degree programs, two doctoral programs, and 22 professional certificate programs.
Among the many distinguished Temple-associated individuals, we may mention the following:
Temple is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE).

Our answer to this is to show you the disciplines in which a school's faculty and alumni have had the highest historical influence. A school may be influential in a discipline even if they do not offer degrees in that area. We've organized two lists to show where they are influential and offer corresponding degrees, and where they are influential through scholarship although they don't offer degrees in the disciplines.
