At Thomas Jefferson University, we've always believed we needed to create the professionals of the future. (We've been doing it since 1884.) Our method? We call it Nexus Learning™ - our signature approach that is making Jefferson a transformative force in higher education. We are preparing students for the future of work by ensuring development of critical skills employers seek for tomorrow’s work place.

Ever heard the phrase two heads are better than one? When great minds come together, solutions are found. We also believe those great minds don't have to think alike. At Jefferson, interdisciplinary student teams join forces with faculty and industry capitalizing on their respective talents and creating real value in the world.

Nexus Learning means just the right blend of theory and hands-on learning.  Our signature approach provides students with a real competitive advantage in a rapidly changing world.

Areas of Excellence

Our core programs—or Areas of Interest—drive students beyond the traditional limits of academics to inspire change and test just how far we can take what we know.
