About Our College
Drexel University’s College of Arts and Sciences (CoAS) stands unafraid in the face of change. We recognize that our ever-evolving, fast-paced culture requires a new approach to education, one that understands the world is malleable and can be molded by minds inspired to lead society’s evolution.
But innovation requires more than an ambitious personality. It requires versatility — we must not only be experts in our fields, but also agile enough to engage in the cross-disciplinary work needed to address modern problems resourcefully. That’s why our faculty challenge students to see past their own perspectives and establish a deeper understanding of humanity’s needs. It’s why our co-op program inserts students within a professional culture, introducing them to the expectations of the job while offering hands-on practical application of coursework. And it’s why, starting as early as freshmen year, students team with faculty members as peers, conducting research that affects the world now.
Here at CoAS, we are committed to implementing in-the-moment change, not for personal glory, but because it’s what the world needs.
