As a small liberal-arts college, Dickinson affords faculty and students the unique opportunity to explore widely and then focus on the interests they’re most passionate about.
Classes here are taught by full-time faculty, with few adjuncts, and no student teachers or assistants. Our small classes and low teacher-to-student ratio allow students and professors to actually get to know each other, fostering a spirit of collaboration and partnership between the two that is uniquely Dickinsonian.
From your first-year seminar to your senior-year capstone project you’ll collaborate on research and engage in projects with your professors. In the process, you'll get to know them as teachers, mentors and even friends. They’ll continue to be there for support as you move into grad school or a career.
