Where knowledge and experience meet
At Delaware Valley University, you’ll get the education you want and the experience you need to pursue your passions, realize your dreams, effect real change, and tackle the issues most important to you.
Using nearly 120 years of science as our foundation for teaching, we take agricultural science and environmental studies to a new level. We give our students the opportunity to study everything from the life, physical, environmental, and agricultural sciences to business and the humanities, criminal justice, and communications—all in an interdisciplinary approach to learning.
We’re building a community of passionate students and faculty committed to how the DelVal experience can help them enhance our global environment. Our entire community cultivates inspiration, intelligence, and imagination to inspire new thinking, debate new options, and create new initiatives.
