Experiences are what make Drew.


Résumé-Ready Experiences

They’re also what build up your knowledge and shape you into someone who’s ready for whatever comes next. You’ll leave here with at least two standout experiences under your belt. Spend a semester in New York or London. Intern with the National Park Service. Develop the next great antifungal drug. Support local after-school programs as part of Community-Based Learning classes. Go beyond the classroom, embark on an adventure, deepen your understanding — this is where you build the practical skills that prepare you for big things later.

Global Education

Study Abroad

Travel across the Hudson or around the world in our nycTRECs, shortTRECs, and longTRECs. Rethink assumptions from a new vantage point. Explore your chosen field—or an entirely different one—in a new context. Connect with other industries and cultures, and to where you want to go from here.

Career Development

Internship Experience

Internships are experiential learning opportunities that allow you to link coursework and skills to a real-life work environment. They can be paid or unpaid, on-campus or off-campus, for credit or not for credit. Internships allow you to gain resume-ready work experience and develop your transferable skills while helping establish your professional network.

Science Research

Research Opportunities

Research projects give you a chance to work on a particular area of interest with a Drew faculty member in a real lab setting. These collaborative, mentored experiences are an excellent way to build academic and career experience.

Civic Engagement

Community and Service Learning

Community-Based Learning courses, alternative breaks, Changebuilders certifications, and other initiatives foster the ability to connect academic learning with action in the world. These experiences strengthen community partners, build students’ transferable skills, and connect passion for action with academic interests.

City Semesters

Immerse yourself in a major world city for a full semester, with Drew professors and classmates at your side. With our semester-long city programs, you earn academic credit while gaining exclusive access to rarefied professional realms.
