About Drew University

Drew's College of Liberal Arts seeks a diverse, energetic, and talented first-year class of approximately 450 students. Chosen from over 6,000 applicants, students come to Drew from 48 states and about 12 foreign countries. Here students learn to sharpen their skills of inquiry, research, analysis, and communication, and learn to place individual subjects into larger contexts. As a pre-medical student at Drew, you may major in any of the College's 28 academic disciplines, including the more traditional fields of the biological and physical sciences. Many students have found it advantageous to double major with one major in the sciences and a second major in a discipline such as political science, Spanish, or theatre. One strength of the pre-med preparation at Drew is distinguished by the high quality of the curriculum and faculty. Over 85 percent of Drew graduates who apply to health professions schools have been accepted. The RISE program provides distinguished, recently retired, industrial scientists with facilities to continue their research programs in exchange for mentoring Drew undergraduates in areas such as biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics. The Drew Summer Science Institute also offers undergraduates the opportunity to conduct research over the summer with mentors from faculty and RISE.

Enrichment Program Name The Baldwin Honors Program
Web Site http://www.drew.edu/undergraduate/academics#Honors
Description

Baldwin Scholars are exceptional students with strong academic records who seek a special opportunity for independent learning, engagement and research. The honors program meets this demand by offering a challenging set of courses augmented with exclusive co- and extracurricular activities. These include the sophomore fall honors off-campus overnight, a trip underscoring an academic topic or theme; receptions, dinners or masterclasses with elite VIP speakers, like recent campus visitors Madeleine Albright and Al Gore; and regular honors gatherings with the program director for topical conversations like sustainable energy, the economy and more.

 Back in the classroom—and beyond—junior year focuses on a community initiative, identified and implemented on or off campus by the Baldwin Scholars themselves, which focuses on citizenship or social change, community education or an academic opportunity. The experience culminates in a capstone project during senior year.

All this adds up to a challenging and rewarding experience for participants that enriches and enhances the academic culture at Drew.

Above and beyond the regular challenges of an undergraduate education, the Baldwin Honors Program curriculum includes:

  • First year: one-credit fall honors colloquium, spring honors seminar
  • Sophomore year: fall or spring honors seminar
  • Junior year: participation in the community initiative
  • Senior year: completion of a capstone honors thesis or project
  • One additional honors course: seminar, honors-across-the-curriculum course or tutorial
