MLA Faculty

MLA courses are taught by distinguished faculty from a wide range of disciplines, from English and History to Political Science, Philosophy, and the arts.

Graduate offerings through other departments in the College of Liberal Arts at Temple are taught by the University’s Graduate Faculty. For further information on any faculty, see websites of individual departments.

Faculty bios accompany course listings and descriptions each semester/summer session (see "Course Offerings").



"The people I met at Temple were amazing. I was impressed with the personal style of both the MLA administrators and professors.

"There was always a wonderful diversity of thought in my classes; my fellow MLA students brought their varied experiences into our classroom discussions and online forums.  As a teacher, I was inspired by the dynamic approaches to teaching by my Temple professors; the level of engagement and thoughtful feedback provided me with the support to expand my perspectives and improve my writing."

Alice Bateman, former MLA student (Middle School Teacher)
