While both New Jersey campuses have a variety of courses and programs, the College at Florham emphasizes traditional liberal arts offerings, while the Metropolitan Campus is gradually placing more and more emphasis on professionally oriented study. The Metropolitan Campus, while it has residence halls, is largely a commuter campus. Fairleigh Dickinson is home to the QUEST program, where students can study any major and combine their bachelor's degree with a master's in education. FDU also offers AACSB-accredited graduate business courses through its Silberman College of Business. In 2007, Fairleigh Dickinson's Silberman College of Business was Ranked as one of the top 282 Business Schools in the country by Princeton Review. [6] The University has had long-standing connections with the United Nations, offering qualified students opportunities for internships with the UN and its associated agencies.[7] A bachelors degree is usually an undergraduate academic degree awarded for a course or major that generally lasts for three, four, or in some cases and countries, five or six years. ...

History

Fairleigh Dickinson University was founded by Dr. Peter Sammartino and his wife, Sylvia, in 1942 in Rutherford, New Jersey as a two-year college. It was named for its benefactor, Colonel Fairleigh S. Dickinson, Sr. (1858–1942), a co-founder of Becton Dickinson.[10] By 1948, Fairleigh Dickinson College expanded its curriculum to offer a four-year program. In that same year, the school received accreditation from the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. In 1956, the same year the University acquired the former Twombly-Vanderbilt estate in Madison, the institution was recognized as Fairleigh Dickinson University by the New Jersey State Board of Education.

Operations on the Rutherford Campus were merged with the Metropolitan Campus in 1993 and the Rutherford Campus was later sold to Felician College.
