Faculty

At the recently merged institution that is now Thomas Jefferson University, the presence of design, business, humanities and social sciences faculty means that basic research, scholarship and professional development at Jefferson are no longer exclusively in medical, biomedical and life sciences areas.  East Falls faculty in the College of Humanities and Sciences, trained in mathematics, physics, humanities and social sciences, are committed to strong and sustained research programs, and many have national and international reputations as a result of their high-quality scholarship.
