Faculty

Develop relationships that advance your skills.

Students receive individual attention from their professors—Ph.D. professors, not the graduate assistants you’d find in larger schools. Our students also start with and move through their sequences together, fostering stronger friendships and getting comfortable with working in teams. See what degrees you could earn when you learn from these professors.
