Undergraduate Degree Programs

Take the inside track to a successful career and rewarding future.

At Widener, you'll meet faculty mentors, tap into industry connections, and get hands-on experience in your field.

  • Feel supported from day one: Even before you step onto campus, you'll connect with a support team, including faculty mentors, peer mentors, and student affairs staff. From there, you'll gain access to ongoing resources and support networks—think career advising, personal counseling, and student accessibility and health services.
  • Step into career-shaping experiences: Take on multiple internships or pursue a paid co-op. Conduct breakthrough research. Take on leadership roles on and off campus. As you build your professional network, you'll sharpen the "outside-the-classroom skills" employers need and reward. 
  • Sit in the driver's seat: You'll have the support you need to chart your own path—one that aligns with your personal goals and aspirations—with many options to take your degree further and customize your education
