The College of Liberal Arts at Drew University, which enrolls more than 1,500 students, is the largest school of a coeducational, independent university and offers the Bachelor of Arts degree in 29 fields. Its faculty, more than 95 percent of whom hold the doctorate or the highest terminal degree in their fields, have been selected for their strong academic credentials, ability to inspire students, and dedication to teaching and scholarship. With the consistent increase in the breadth and quality of academic, social and extra-curricular offerings, the College has become a national leader in what Drew President Robert Weisbuch has termed “a renaissance for the liberal arts.”
