Temple University is designated as one of only 115 institutions in the nation as an "R1: Doctoral Universities -- Highest Research Activity" by The Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education in its 2015 classification.
Research is central to both master's and doctoral degree programs at Temple University. We’re an undergraduate-only institution, so there are plenty of chances to interact one-on-one with your professors. So we have dedicated creative writing housing, poetry slams, seven student-run publications and frequent late-night literary gatherings. From Day One, your work will be critiqued by professional, published authors—who are also your professors.The purpose of these awards is to provide eligible students with funding to encourage their pursuit of research activity in the first, second, and/or third summers of their graduate studies. Applicants can apply each summer until they achieve candidacy, although preference is given to first-time applicants.Temple University offers a limited number of fellowships to support outstanding students in doctoral or terminal master's degree programs.It facilitates the Seavey Reading Series, which brings around six nationally known writers, editors, and/or literary agents a year to the area.The Institute funds and supports four major literary magazines on campus—Rivercraft, Essay, the Susquehanna Review , and Apprentice Writer—as well several smaller journals and the Forum for Undergraduate Student Editors.The Writers Institute also organizes a senior reading and chapbook series to celebrate the accomplishments of creative writing majors.
