The liberal arts provide a well-rounded education and a range of intellectual skills rather than a narrow, professional or technical education. It’s an education that provides an overview of the arts, humanities, social sciences, mathematics and natural sciences.

This approach emphasizes broad knowledge of the wider world. It offers a chance to explore a variety of academic disciplines rather than follow a specific set of courses that train students for a single career track.

Why are the liberal arts so valuable?

The value of a liberal arts education is backed up byfacts and statistics. Here are just a few:

  • The earning power of liberal arts grads increases 78% from graduation to retirement; this is a higher rate than non-liberal arts graduates
  • At peak earning age (56-60) liberal arts graduates earned an average of $2,000 more per year than those who majored as undergrads in professional fields
  • The Wall Street Journal reports that liberal arts degrees are preferred for CEOs
  • One in three Fortune 500 CEOs hold degrees in liberal arts
  • 17% of PhD holders earned undergraduate degrees at liberal arts colleges, but only 8% of all bachelor’s degree holders earned their degree at liberal arts colleges

Special Admission Programs


5-Year B.A. and Master of Arts in Teaching


Drew offers an innovative and advanced approach to teacher education – a 5 year (4+1) bachelor of arts/master of arts in teaching program. This approach will allow you to enter the teaching field with a career advantage that translates to greater job prospects, higher salaries and increased opportunity for promotion.


Qualifications for Consideration


  • Minimum High School GPA of 3.0
  • SAT score of 1600 combined score or

When you meet admissions requirements and maintain your high level of academic achievement during your time at Drew, this program allows you to begin Masters’ level course work in your junior year as you earn your bachelor’s degree, developing a well-rounded liberal arts foundation focusing on your subject area of interest. Upon completing your BA, you then enter our master of arts in teaching (MAT), which allows you to become certified to teach at the middle or secondary school level in biology, chemistry, English, French, Italian, math, physics, Spanish, social studies or theatre arts.


The MAT program (5th year) runs from June to May, allowing you to complete your master’s in just under a year. During this time you’ll immerse yourself in course work and also participate in fieldwork experiences.


When you enroll in the B.A./MAT program, in addition to your undergraduate academic advisor, you will receive special support and guidance from a MAT faculty advisor.


7-Year Dual-Degree Medical Program


Drew offers simultaneous admission to both Drew and the Rutgers – New Jersey Medical School (Rutgers-NJMS). Successful candidates spend three years of study at Drew and four years at Rutgers-NJMS, completing both B.A. and M.D. degrees. This program is space limited and very competitive.

Educational Opportunity Scholars (EOS/EOF)


The Educational Opportunity Scholars program is a partnership between the New Jersey Commission of Higher Education and Drew University. Within this partnership, the program provides access to higher education and support for highly motivated students who exhibit the potential for success, but come from families of low income and lack access to the quality educational preparation necessary to attend college. The program provides direct services designed to promote persistence through degree completion. Furthermore, the program supports innovative educational initiatives, support services and leadership development activities to enhance the student’s chance for academic success.


To be considered for the EOS/EOF program, you must:


  1. demonstrate financial need and a background of historical poverty,
  2. have a family income that falls within the established income eligibility criteria,
  3. demonstrate an educationally disadvantaged background, and
  4. be a U.S. citizen and a resident of New Jersey for 12 months immediately preceding enrollment.


Students enrolled in the EOS/EOF program receive additional grants from the state of New Jersey. In addition, Drew University provides significant additional need-based aid to support EOS students. Students also attend a free summer enrichment program to prepare for success in college and receive extra support services throughout their studies, such as counseling and tutoring. For more information, visit the EOF site.

5-Year Dual-Degree Program in Engineering with Columbia University


Students selected for Drew’s dual-degree engineering program spend three years earning a B.A. at Drew, based on our top-flight liberal arts education. Students then move to the engineering program at Columbia University and in two years earn a B.S. or B.Eng. in Engineering.
