Inside Academics at Denison The buzz on the street gets it right: Our professors are the best. They are at the center of Denison's position as a national leader in both student engagement and academic rigor.
Denison's faculty are world-class researchers, dedicated teachers and mentors. They choose to be at Denison because they enjoy working closely with their students. They're smart and approachable, and they inspire great things, making a significant difference in their students' personal, professional and civic lives.
We asked a few of our professors to talk about academics at Denison. It's a way to see inside our classrooms, labs and studios — to get a sense of why teaching and learning are just better here, why relationships and mentoring matter so much, and why Denison graduates are better prepared to thrive.

New majors & concentrations
Denison’s curriculum balances breadth with depth, building academic specialization upon a liberal arts foundation. While our students pursue specialized learning in their chosen majors, they also develop the framework for an integrated intellectual life, spiritually and morally informed, with an emphasis on global perspective and civic engagement.
Denison's commitment to the liberal arts, the strength of our pre-professional advising, and the success of our graduates have made Denison well-known by professional schools ranging from medicine and business to law and engineering.
Beyond curricular offerings, Denison provides a number of co-curricular and scholarly opportunities for all students. These range from campus initiatives to local and regional service, and from supplemental academic ventures to social and cultural experiences.
Academic Support regularly offers programs and services designed to help students improve their overall academic performance and ultimately assist students in achieving excellence.
