Our Approach

34 majors and countless minors and programs are all designed to put you on the path to success.

More than just a student

We believe, as St. Augustine did, that it is better to learn with others than alone. For this reason, we encourage students to openly engage, debate and exchange ideas, both with faculty and each other. Interactive classes, low student-to-teacher ratios and group group projects reinforce this idea by promoting dynamic, active learning.
