Rowan University evolved from humble beginnings in 1923 as a normal school, with a mission to train teachers for South Jersey classrooms, to a comprehensive university with a strong regional reputation.
Rowan provides an exceptional environment for achievement and fulfillment in a dynamic society through rigorous intellectual effort and vigorous personal interaction among all members of its diverse learning community. As a regional public university committed to teaching, Rowan combines liberal education with professional preparation and offers undergraduate through doctoral programs. The Rowan ambition: knowledge through study; responsibility through service; and character through challenge.
Rowan University is divided into seven academic colleges: Business, Communication, Education, Engineering, Fine & Performing Arts, Liberal Arts & Sciences, the College of Professional and Continuing Education and a Graduate School. Rowan's nearly 10,000 students may pursue degrees in 36 undergraduate majors, seven teacher certification programs, 26 master's degree programs and a doctorate in educational leadership.
From the modest normal school begun more than 80 years ago, Rowan University has become an extraordinary comprehensive institution that has improved the quality of life for the citizens of New Jersey and the surrounding states.
