Wilkes University

We have about 2,500 undergraduate students on campus, so you’ll get to know your classmates by name. And you’ll receive personalized attention from your professors, not a glance from a graduate student in a 500-seat lecture hall. We offer big opportunities. Wilkes is the only university of our size to offer the broad mix of professional and liberal arts programs we do. You’ll have the opportunity to choose from numerous majors across six different schools. If you can’t pick just one, you can double major or combine a major and a minor. Double major in engineering and digital media. Major in accounting and minor in Spanish. With so many different programs, you’ll have a wide range of options. (If you’re a math major, you can figure out exactly how many.) In addition to bachelor degree programs, Wilkes offers master's degree programs and doctoral/terminal degree programs including the doctor of nursing practice, doctor of education, doctor of pharmacy, doctor of philosophy in nursing and master of fine arts in creative writing. A Wilkes education is worth it.The Economist ranked Wilkes University 25th in the nation for economic value by comparing what our graduates earn to what they might have earned if they had studied elsewhere. The Brookings Institution, Money magazine and technology company Smart Asset have also recognized the value of a Wilkes education. We know that our commitment to academic success pays off for our students, but it’s great to see others catching on.
