The Easy Decision

Higher education has truly become an investment. In uncertain economic times, not knowing your return on an investment can be a scary thing. We believe that an investment in a Rowan degree is a long-term investment in your future. Our graduates are in demand now more than ever and with the acquisition of two medical schools AND achieving state-designated research status, the possibilities are endless. 

How fast is Rowan growing?

In the years 2012 and 2013 we opened Cooper Medical School of Rowan University and acquired the School of Osteopathic Medicine in Stratford, a move that made Rowan one of just two universities in the nation to have two medical schools, one allopathic and one osteopathic.

In 2013 Rowan was reclassified to a research university, a change designed to attract federal and private research dollars and foster new professional degrees like Biomedical Engineering, Pharmacy, and much more.

Rowan Boulevard, a $300 million investment linking Rowan's lush main campus with historic downtown Glassboro, continues to grow. The Boulevard already features luxury student apartments, a Barnes & Noble Collegiate Superstore, a Marriott Hotel, honors housing, casual dining, and more.
