Research Overview

Research Areas

Research is a central part of Drexel University and the College of Arts and Sciences (CoAS). CoAS faculty researchers are leaders in a wide array of cutting-edge projects and regularly receive grant funding from organizations like the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and NASA, to name only a few. Collaborative partners include colleges and departments across the university, along with a number of local, national and international organizations.

For undergraduate and graduate students, your College of Arts and Sciences experience is one of discovery: who you are, who you want to become, and what motivates you. It’s also about discovering the world around you, and how to interact with it to create new ideas, new solutions, new methods to make life better. If your major requires a strong research component, you’ll have the opportunity to work side-by-side with your professors beginning as early as your freshman year. Research opportunities are available not only in the natural and social sciences, but also in the humanities, including the chance to conduct paid research with College faculty through programs such as the Humanities and Dean’s Fellowship programs.
