10 Ways to
Personal Attention from Expert FacultyYou’ll never get lost in the crowd at FDU. Our average class size is 18–20 students and our undergraduate student/faculty ratio is a very personal 12:1. We’ve banished big lecture halls from our campuses — and we don’t use graduate assistants to instruct. More than seven out of every 10 faculty members hold a Ph.D. or highest degree in their field. They include award-winning authors, experienced business executives, accomplished artists, and noted scholars, educators and researchers.
The Majors You Want
Choose from our more than 100 majors and concentrations in business, education, engineering, hotel/restaurant management, liberal arts, nursing and allied health, and the sciences — including popular programs like animation, criminology, forensic psychology, sports administration and theater. We also have accelerated bachelor’s/master’s and bachelor’s/professional degree programs (including medicine and dentistry) that can save you time and money.
Campuses in New Jersey, England and Canada
You probably know about our great campus locations in northern New Jersey — the College at Florham (Madison, NJ) and the Metropolitan Campus (Teaneck, NJ). But FDU also owns and operates Wroxton College in England, located on a historic country estate about 112 km from London. In 2007, we opened a campus in Vancouver (British Columbia), Canada, one of the world’s most dynamic and cosmopolitan cities.
