Each academic department at Drew has been engaged in the process of reorienting learning around our mission and learning outcomes by answering the essential question of “Why?”
If you can Google it, it probably needn’t be memorized. But more importantly, if you don’t understand why you need to know it or how you’re going to apply it in real life, then you’re not really learning.
At Drew, you’ll always be asked to think about the “why” when considering the impact your newfound knowledge has on you, your life, your community, and the world.
So what does this all mean for your classroom experience at Drew?
It means more discussions, more problem solving, more opportunities to apply your new understanding to the real world and more projects. It means that your work will be relevant, impactful, and even energizing; most certainly not dry, passive and disjointed.
With a 9:1 ratio of students to full time faculty, and an average class size of 14, the Drew classroom is an engaging learning environment designed to channel your curiosity and creativity into purposeful excellence.
