Academic Programs



Although offered in a trimester calendar, our degree programs at the Vancouver Campus are similar in content to like programs (see BS - IT, BS - Bus. Admin. and BAIS) offered at our New Jersey campuses.



Undergraduate Degree Programs


The Vancouver Campus offers the following academic programs leading to the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University. We also offer a Bachelor of Arts degree.

For the most part, instructional delivery consists of in-person classroom-based lectures. A good number of lecture courses have a fully integrated laboratory component.

The University utilizes a unique program management and course delivery model that permits a blend of onsite instruction and online learning technologies. New Jersey full-time faculty are involved in selected courses, via online learning technologies appropriate to the degree program and its curriculum. In a similar fashion Vancouver full-time faculty are also involved in delivering course instruction to students in New Jersey in selected courses.


Graduate Degree Program


The Master of Administrative Science (MAS) degree is a 30-credit degree to enhance the administrative and leadership skills of graduates.

The program combines both cognitive and affective (interactive) instruction through case studies, simulations, individual and group exercises, and fieldwork that helps to develop critical managerial effectiveness. The MAS educational experience seeks to develop critical administrative competencies in a supportive learning environment in conjunction with specific and clear feedback.


Pre-University Program


The Vancouver Campus's “pre-university program” provides advanced English-language training for students who meet the University’s admission standards but require additional training in English (in speaking and/or writing) prior to matriculating in one of the two degree programs above.


Pre-Masters Program


The Pre-Master’s Program provides international students with the advanced academic skills they need to be successful in the Master of Administrative Science (MAS) degree program. Students who enroll in the program meet all the academic admission requirements, but require additional preparation in academic reading, writing and research skills at the graduate level. Students can self-select to take this program or be placed in the program based on the outcome of the Vancouver Campus English Placement Test.
