The chemistry and biochemistry curriculum is designed to teach students how to deal effectively with a world increasingly dominated by the ideas and methods of modern science. Denison students and faculty enjoy a unique environment for active learning throughout the year—small classes, excellent laboratory and library facilities, and top-level instrumentation and computer resources.
Foreign language courses allow entry into the subjectivity of the language on its own cultural and linguistic grounds, allowing for a more profound redefinition of culture. The Department of Modern Languages provides Chinese language courses for the purpose of general education and in support of other college programs.
The major in Cinema is designed for the serious student who is interested in the history, theory, and production of film and video as art forms. Students learn the process of producing creative works of cinema utilizing both film and digital equipment. The goals of the major are to provide students with a working knowledge of the principles of production in connection with an understanding of Cinema as an art form.
As part of the Department of Classics, the major and minor in Classics entails an education in both ancient Greek and Latin, focusing on the literature, history and culture of both ancient Greece and Rome. Whether through the art of poetry, the rhetoric of politics, the logic of philosophy, or the analysis of historiography, the study of Greek and Latin inculcates a lucidity of expression and a predilection for reason, as it inspires creativity, civic awareness, ethical behavior, and critical inquiry.
The Department of Communication offers more than 40 courses that present considerable breadth and depth in the areas of rhetoric, media studies, and human communication. We provide a range of resources and programs for students including academically rigorous classes, opportunities to work closely with professors on research, creative teaching that often includes service learning, regular research colloquia and guest speakers, a national honorary society, and more.
Computer scientists study the inherent complexity of computational problems, and design efficient algorithms to solve them. At Denison, we emphasize the enduring core principles of computer science, and how they can be applied to a vast array of interdisciplinary problems in the natural and social sciences, and the arts.
