Use the 'FontSize' property of the current axes:

Be sure to add the title before setting font size. If you change font size then add the title it will be in the font size you just set. Though you can change it again afterwards.

If you search for 'tick labels' or something similar, in the file exchange there are numerous options that replace the tick labels locked into the axes font size with text objects that can be manipulated independently.
I can't vouch for any particular one as I have never used any of them though.
