The Delaware Valley is the cradle of North American Ornithology. This course aims to give students a hands on lab and field experience in identifying birds found in the Delaware Valley. Half of the classes are held outside at local parks and refuges and the remainder are in the lab where specimens from the world renowned collections housed at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University will be studied.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
