"Widener University offers an Accelerated Reserved Seat Pre-Physical Therapy program that allows students to finish out their DPT in six years, rather than seven. This program has helped me in many ways and helped me save a lot of money and time in tuition costs. In addition, to this amazing program, Widener University is a diverse culture that focuses on community and leadership. It is a fairly small campus with small class sizes so you get to know your professors and faculty really well. People who work here cares for the success of their students and offers help whenever they can."

  • Degree: Social Work
  • Graduation Year: 2008
"I started my college career as an environmental science major. I struggled with the curriculum as I didn't have a strong enough background in the math and advanced sciences needed. My science academic adviser helped me reconfigure my courses to a minor, and I switched my major to social work. The Widener Social work program is built with two goals in mind: to do clinical social work and eventually earn your masters in social work, and to double as a psychology major. Since I wanted to do community work with my degree, I often butt heads with my internship professor, but in the end I was able to earn a job because of that internship, which gave me a huge financial and resume boost until I was able to find work that reflected my goals of disaster preparation and recovery. The one on one attention I received is why I decided to go back to earn my masters in Public Administration, to further my goal of community management."

"The social work program has a curriculum that provides smaller classrooms for more individualized attention and more hands-on learning as they allow students to engage in service learning and internship possibilities. Professors encourage students to be out in the field and applying their learning in the classroom to their learning environment out of the classroom."

  • Degree: Mechanical Engineering
  • Graduation Year: 2013
"Widener has an excellent engineering program. Coupled with the co-op program, you can graduate with an engineering degree and real world experience. It's close proximity to major engineering companies such as Boeing, Eaton, and DuPoint give students the opportunity to apply what they've learned in the classroom to real engineering problem."
