Drew is all about big experiences and bold futures (yours)

Drew University is so much more than a place to earn your degree. It’s where you’ll meet some of your closest friends. Get connected to life-changing mentors. Learn in ways that could take you around the globe, or straight into the real world of professional life, meaningful community action, and leading social change.

As a Drew student, you can choose from 40+ majors, 60+ minors, 18 Dual-Degree programs and 17 pre-professional programs. And you’ll graduate with a purpose—not to mention the skills employers are looking for, and an experience-based résumé that ties everything together. No wonder over 90% of Drew graduates are employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation.

Drew professors are there to mentor, debate, challenge, and inspire you. They care—about you and your learning. And they’ll help you build your network of academic, career, and personal advisors who will guide you along your path to graduation and beyond.

Every Drew student participates in at least two experiences to build their résumé and explore their interests. (For example: our one-of-a-kind New York City Semesters. You could find yourself working on Wall Street, at the United Nations, with media giants, alongside grassroots organizers, in the contemporary art world, or on the theatre scene.)

We also offer a variety of study abroad programs, from full semesters to just a few weeks. If science is your thing, you’ll have exceptional opportunities for advanced research in Drew’s Summer Science Institute and Research Institute for Scientists Emeriti (RISE) programs.  

As for our location, it’s hard to beat. Madison, NJ, is a picture-perfect small town that’s only an hour from all the opportunities of NYC and equally close to the Jersey Shore, the Pocono mountains, and many other outdoor adventures. The campus is lush and green, full of historic buildings and state-of-the-art facilities.

Drew is home to 90+ student-run clubs and organizations, 26 NCAA Division III athletic teams, and a non-stop lineup of events and activities, from fun festivals to Drew TEDx. And it all happens in a supportive community that has your back and is rooting for your success.

Immersive experiences

All Drew University students graduate having completed at least two immersive experiences. And at Drew, we expand the definition beyond internships, embracing the many ways students apply transferable skills and expand their networks in real-world settings, both on and off campus. You could participate in our one-of-a-kind programs in New York City—on Wall Street, at the United Nations, with media giants, alongside grassroots organizers, in the contemporary art world, or in the theater scene—and commute into the global center of culture and commerce from your campus home.
