The College of Arts and Sciences

About the College

By pursuing excellence in research, scholarship, and creativity, we train our graduate students to become ethical professionals with expertise in particular areas of inquiry and an appreciation for the fundamental interactions among disciplines in a fast-changing and diverse world.

Graduate Programs

Drexel University's College of Arts and Sciences recognizes that our ever-evolving world requires a new approach to graduate education, one that understands that change begins with minds inspired to learn and to lead. Innovation requires more than ambition—it requires versatility. Our graduate programs train students to be not only experts in their chosen fields, but also agile enough to engage in the cross-disciplinary work needed to address modern problems on a global scale. Our faculty members challenge students to see past their own perspectives and establish a deeper understanding of humanity's needs. Students partner with faculty mentors for cutting-edge research, scholarship, and creative work that affects the world now. Internships and co-op programs insert students within a professional culture, offering hands-on practical training and application of coursework to the real world. 

English Language Center

As part of the College of Arts and Sciences, Drexel’s English Language Center offers the accredited Intensive English Program and International Gateway Program throughout the year. In addition to classes in academic skills such as essay writing and oral presentations, the Center offers Language of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), Language of Media and Design, Global Business English (GLOBE), English for Academic Purposes, ESL/EFL Teaching Enhancement, and other subjects.
