although the commute from Philadelphia to North Jersey is something less to be desired, Drew does offer Commuter Housing. What this means for me as a commuter student is that instead of commuting 4 hours each way, each day, by train and bus, I can now stay over night on Campus a few days a week.

The Drew MAT program is great in theory, and the people who leave the program tend to be hired quickly and be very happy with their jobs. However, the program has some serious organizational issues, especially with the recent switch in its director. This causes for incredible levels of stress and anxiety in an already intensive and challenging program.

The Pros of the doctoral program is the resourcefulness of the faculty, the tuition assistance, and networking. I have not gotten through the program yet so I can not speak to the cons. So far, things have been smooth sailing.

I absolutely love the programs at Drew! The Arts & Letters and History & Culture Departments are excellent. The teachers are very accessible and knowledgeable. The work is challenging but also thought provoking, which is what I love. I know that I have made the right decision.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of the program include: (1) small class sizes and a really intimate and supported environment (2) rigorous coursework (3) understanding faculty that truly want to make you a better educator (4) ability to complete your Masters degree in a year (5) beautiful campus and friendly cohort members. The cons include: (1) demanding coursework and professors (2) less time to absorb content in the packed summer sessions and (3) high cost of attendance. Overall, it is a great program but you do pay for the quality/name!

Drew University has a track record of providing excellent track record for offering students graduate programs that are tailored to each student. My undergraduate and graduate education thus far has been at state sponsored universities that were not flexible in terms of meeting students individual academic goals -- Drew is the complete opposite. Faculty and staff will work with the student to provide an excellent education experience.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

I am in the MA program for religious studies. Often, the MA is grouped in with the M.Div, which is often an alienating experience, since I do not want to be a pastor -I want to be a professor. There is a lot of Christianity thrown at you here, but it is not required. I like that I can study in a religious institution without having a mandatory chapel service every week. Another con is that MAs can only receive up to 50% tuition scholarships, while M.Divs can get up to 100%. That does not make any sense to me, since I believe scholarships should be given based on merit and financial need, rather than the chosen program.
