Fairleigh Dickinson University

The largest private university in New Jersey, FDU is a not-for-profit, nonsectarian, multicampus institution. 

Founded in 1942, FDU achieved four-year status in 1948 and approval as a university in 1956.

The University offers over 100 undergraduate and graduate degree programs, including doctoral programs in pharmacy, nursing practice, clinical psychology and school psychology; and an AACSB-accredited business school. 

Degree programs are offered on two New Jersey campuses and at two FDU locations outside the U.S.: Wroxton College, in Oxfordshire in England, and the Vancouver Campus, in British Columbia, Canada.

FDU’s 12,000+ full- and part-time students pursue quality career-oriented programs on schedules tailored to their needs — days, evenings and weekends.

The curriculum reflects a mission of global education and a foundation of a nationally-renowned Core.

The Vancouver Campus offers students one of the few opportunities to earn an American college degree while studying in Canada. 

All degree programs offered at the Vancouver Campus have been authorized by the British Columbia Ministry of Advanced Education. 

Fairleigh Dickinson University – Vancouver welcomes students from around the world to create a culturally diverse learning environment.
