Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University)

Philadelphia, PA, USA
3.59 Average Rating

Jefferson is a 4-year institution born out of a merger between Philadelphia University and Thomas Jefferson University. TJU was founded in 1824 and, as of 2015, was the largest free-standing health sciences university in the state. Philadelphia U was founded in 1884 as a textile school but rapidly grew to award baccalaureate degrees. Together as of 2017, the two feature 11 colleges with majors in seven large areas of study: Architecture, Engineering, Science, Business, Fashion & Textiles, Social Science, Design, and Health. Jefferson maintains a total of six locations, with two primary campuses, Center City and East Falls, both located in Philadelphia, PA. Both offer the Jefferson-specific curriculum, which features “hands-on immersion through interprofessional education,” or interdisciplinary education.

Philadelphia University is a beautiful university. The faculty here will do all it can to make sure you succeed in your future career or field. It provides many opportunities that many other universities do not, including free tutoring, personal training, and campus activities.
Rachel from Weatherly, PA
Philadelphia University offers a great variety of assets. They provide students such as myself with excellent food, a top notch library, and a campus center to hang out. I find my experience here to be most wonderful when dorming because everything is so convenient!
