We know one size degree does not fit all, so you’ll work one-on-one with your advisor to develop a degree plan that sets you up for your future. And because of our small class sizes, you get more opportunities to work closely with faculty who are experts in their field, and engage in hands-on learning, like original research, experiments, conferences and more.
