The graduate program in History and Culture at Drew is essentially a European Studies doctoral program with a few courses in U.S. history on offer few and far between. Only go to this doctoral program if you are interested in European Studies or Irish Studies in particular.
I am very pleased with the level of competence of instructors in the PhD program. Would like to see more choices offered at a time and also need to schedule class times that are more friendly to those who work full time and cannot take a class in the middle of the day.
Amount of reading is a bit excessive. I would prefer to have smaller more manageable reading assignments that I could really absorb rather than skimming through volumes with only a limited amount of understanding and retention of information.Also would prefer less material at the reserve desk...I need to be able to take stuff home not tie up 2 hours at the library.
“Drew is a good place to study religion
Aug 25 2004Religion/Religious
Drew is a good place to study religion. Very little competition between students and faculty are extremely accessible. Most students are very friendly. There is an emphasis on your development as a scholar and (depending on your advisor) not an agenda to create you into a professor's school or program. Financial aid is the ONLY problem I've ever heard students really complain about with real legitimacy. The library has its weaknesses, but is adequate for my needs.
“although the faculty is quite helpful, and qualified,
Apr 07 2003English
although the faculty is quite helpful, and qualified, overall the university ignores its graduate students and treats them like second class citizens. once drew has your money they pay little attention to your needs. graduate students are not even close to a priority at drew. drew's administration is poorly run, and i would never reccomend this school for graduate studies to any student. if you do study here hope that you do not use campus housing and do not ever have to deal with anyone but the teachers.
