One real world experience on your resume is good, but why not go from good to WOW? We guarantee two out-of-the-classroom experiences—internships, research, city programs, global classes, civic leadership and more. In 2018, our unique RISE program, through which undergraduates work one-on-one in the lab with professional scientists, and our six New York City semesters were praised by the Council of Independent Colleges.

I studied peacemaking and peacebuilding with Professor Carols Yordan, signed up for the United Nations Semester, did an internship with Peace Boat US and presented research at the American Political Science Association's annual meeting. This led to a master's at George Washington University in international affairs. ”

The Theatre Department at Drew has fantastic professors. Thanks to Professor Ceraso, I was able to do an equity workshop at the Manhattan Theatre Club working with professional actors on a new musical. My internship at the Pearl Theatre Company was also the result of his unending dedication to bringing the best possible opportunities to his students. ”

Thanks to Drew, I graduated with a broad depth of knowledge and wide array of skills. My political science coursework sufficiently prepared me for advanced courses in my Master's program at Georgetown University. I found that my Drew experiences - such as the United Nations semester, study abroad program in China and Civic Scholar volunteer work - paved the road for my success. ”
