Delaware Valley University

Delaware Valley University, located in picturesque Doylestown, Pa., is an independent, interdisciplinary college featuring individualized attention, small class sizes and an applied as well as theoretical approach to learning.

Founded in 1896, DelVal has grown from an agricultural school to an academically rigorous institution dedicated to the sciences and liberal arts. In the words of our founder, Joseph Krauskopf, we take “science with practice” seriously. Today, we use our more than one thousand acres of beautifully maintained land as a functional learning environment, creating a real-life, open-air classroom for many of our disciplines.

DelVal offers more than 25 undergraduate majors in the life, physical and agricultural sciences, humanities and business; seven master’s programs; doctoral degree; and a variety of complementary continuing education courses.

Students, faculty and staff energize one another to tackle the most important issues of our time, both in the classroom and in the real world with hands-on experiences. Our entire community cultivates inspiration, intelligence and imagination to motivate new thinking, debate new options and create new initiatives. Because of our 15:1 student-faculty ratio, there is no room for anonymity. Our faculty know our students by name, developing strong mentoring relationships with them.
