Degree: Animal Science
Graduation Year: 2018

The Laboratory Animal Science Program offers incredible classes that can be directly applied to a career in Laboratory Animal Science. The ability to take online classes while working full time helps pursuing a graduate degree fit into a full time work schedule and maintain a degree of balance between work, school and home life.

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2018

Drexel is a well known and well respected school. I look forward to studying there! I have already been so impressed by this institution during the application process. They have been so helpful, encouraging and responsive. I will be starting in January in the Masters of Human Nutrition program and cannot wait!

Degree: Sports Management
Graduation Year: 2016

One of the top four co-op programs in the country and there are some pretty cool opportunities here, but the school won't hold your hand to find them. Some of the professors are very helpful if you put forth the effort. Be prepared for incredibly dense curricula
3.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Fashion
Graduation Year: 2008

Drexel University was a great experience. One of the best things about Drexel is their co-op program. It allows you to work in industry you are studding and helps make great connections for the future. Having already had a co-op under my belt upon graduation led to me getting a job shortly there after.
4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

The engineering program at Drexel University is both rigorous yet satisfying. It builds character, discipline, and self-motivation for job(s) you may obtain in the future. It demands the students to go above and beyond what is required of them. It's not always set in stone which is why satisfied.
4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Sports Management
Graduation Year: 2012

Drexel was an amazing experience. I enjoyed the fact that I was taking classes who were on and off campus. I believe this gave me a deeper experience. The faculty were incredible and experts In the field while they were actively doing what they were teaching. They gave me guidance on how to pursue my career, and helped me connect with others in the field. They were using technology that allowed me to interact with my cohort while being away from campus, and I never felt like I couldn't reach my advisor or chair of the program at any time. I felt connected from a distance.
4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

Drexel University's online Doctor of Education program offers access to excellent professors with a passion for helping students succeed. Each course is designed to build off and/or connect to other courses or your dissertation. Coursework is aligned to real-world situations because you are always asked to base papers/projects on your current work/future career environment. However, the workload can be overwhelming if you have a family, career, etc. Overall, I feel like I have learned a plethora of information that will guide me to the next step in my career.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

Drexel helps to maximize your college experience, even as a graduate student. There are always events going on through the school or through your specific program that keeps you involved and meeting new people. This includes things like happy hours, trips to museums or other Philly attractions, or a pick up game of beach volleyball on campus.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

Drexels Community Health and Prevention program allows its students the opportunity to gain experience in research and provides a solid understanding of the fundamentals of public health by immersing students in the core disciplines of public health with an emphasis on practice, policy and community engagement. The school has deep relationships with both the City of Philadelphia Department of Public Health as well as The Regional CMS/SAMHSA offices that are based in Philly which students can apply to intern. The program goals of helping students learn through real life work experiences is invaluable. Drexels program has a commitment to producing public health experts equipped to take on the challenges specific to communities. On a systems level, Drexel is involved with hospital systems and lots of FQHCs and organizations such as Delaware Valley Community Health, YMCA, and Project HOME - all of which specifically focus on urban health issues. The Dean of the school has done some seminal research into the effects of place/environment on health. Drexel allows students to learn about health policy and build on their commitment to public health at a high level. The focus on social determinants of health and learning to create, implement, and evaluate interventions to target health disparities is a program that aims to improve the quality of life for its residents in the community. Drexels stands out to me as a school that speaks of the need to produce alumni that are well rounded and culturally competent.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program, ABA, is found to be an effective treatment for social behavior change. The types of interventions used show very consistent results. Con is that the time and cost for ABA can be prohibitive. About treatment are about 40hrs a week. Drexel provides quality education for ABA but tuition is expensive.
