Provided by

Delaware Valley College is an independent, comprehensive, four-year residential institution in New Britain, PA. It enrolls approximately 2000 full-time undergraduates studying 25 majors. The campus sits on 574 acres in Bucks County, PA, between Philadelphia and New York. The entire campus has been designated an arboretum because of its landscaping and wide variety of plant types.[citation needed]

In 2011, the college dedicated its new 398-acre Gemmill Campus in Jamison, PA, after a gift from the Gemmill family of land and money in order to further the college's strategic plan, which involves moving to become a university in 2014. Structural changes, such as dividing the college into four distinct schools, are in preparation for this change. Besides the school of Agriculture and Environmental Science, the college has the School of Life and Physical Science, the School of Business and Humanities, and the School of Graduate, Continuing, and Entrepreneurial studies. Within Business and Humanities may be found a variety of majors, including Business, Secondary Education, Counseling Psychology, Criminal Justice, and English/Media.

Besides graduate programs in Educational Leadership and the MBA, DelVal has recently approved masters' programs in Counseling Psychology and Policy Studies (to begin over the next year or so).

Roughly 98 percent of full-time undergraduates receive financial aid from an annual pool of $20 million.[citation needed]

DelVal, as it is commonly called, had a for-credit employment program that required students to work 500 hours in an area of their major; however, this program is now evolving into a more comprehensive Experiential Learning Program (ExPL). The program is part of the college’s legacy of linking theoretical learning with practical training. At DelVal, students learn by doing. Each department at the college is incorporating ExPL into its curriculum.

Many graduates of Delaware Valley College take positions with the pharmaceutical and food industries, work in government or business, go on to become veterinarians or start their own companies.[citation needed]
