Why Wilkes?

Sitting in that first class at Wilkes University, students may notice something a little unexpected: professors and instructors genuinely interested in students’ thoughts and aspirations. You’ll get to work with professors through hands-on learning. All Wilkes students can take advantage of numerous opportunities to get real-world experience in their field of interest, from starting a business to conducting research to actually using high-tech instruments that even graduate students at other institutions rarely touch.

Founded in 1933, Wilkes University students come from nearly 20 U.S. states and 12 countries. Located at the foothills of the Pocono Mountains, along the shore of the Susquehanna River and within walking distance of the Wilkes-Barre, Pa., city square, Wilkes University is a private institution with more than 2,400 undergraduate students and about 2,300 graduate students.

Wilkes is the only university of our size to offer the broad mix of professional and liberal arts programs we do. You’ll have the opportunity to choose from 42 majors (pending approval of geology) across six schools.

The Economist magazine recently ranked Wilkes University 25th in the United States for economic value. The ranking confirms our commitment to student success beyond college.

The University is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and has specialized accreditation in the sciences, engineering, nursing, education and business.

The Wilkes campus features a park-like quadrangle surrounded by modern classroom buildings and historic 19th-century mansions that have been restored as student residences and academic buildings. Campus facilities include a state-of-the-art science building, financial trading room, sports and conference center, an outdoor athletic complex and field house, a modern academic classroom/office building, a performing arts center, an indoor recreation center, and a student center with a food court, café, entertainment rooms, post office, and ballroom.
