Philadelphia University is developing the model for professional university education in the 21st century.
A university that prepares professionals is focused on what Aristotle described as the three activities of people: the ability to think theoretically, the ability to make things or provide services for a purpose, and the linkages between theory and practice.
Philadelphia University is developing the model for professional education that gives graduates the competencies in their professions, as well as lifelong learning skills in communications, problem solving, and critical reasoning. Our students have the breadth of liberal education to be problem solvers, and the professional focus to lead in their chosen fields.
