Don't be fooled by our size: we offer all the benefits of a major research university bundled into a program only available at a small liberal-arts institution.  All the professors are active in exciting and cutting-edge research, in which students can become involved as early as their first summer here.  Yet our class sizes are small and there are no graduate students nor graduate teaching assistants.  This ensures that all classes are taught by faculty, students receive individualized attention and mentoring, and faculty have the time and resources to ensure that high-quality teaching remains our highest priority.  Across our entire range of courses, our program rivals those of the best colleges, preparing students for any academic or professional pursuit.  To prove it, consider this: 94% of our majors have been accepted into the graduate program of their choice, or have secured a competative job in research or industry.  To learn more, please download our Departmental Brochure, browse further in this website, or contact the Department Chair below.  You can also join us on Facebook at
