Academics that take on the world

Many of Denison's academic programs are built on the foundation of our commitment to cultural diversity. We offer a variety of majors, minors and concentrations that focus on unique people groups, and each student is required to take at least one course in minority or women's studies in his or her general education coursework.

Whatever major you choose, Denison's ethnically diverse faculty and staff bring a world of perspectives to your college experience. From classics to computer science, you'll discover how different cultures have contributed to the academic discipline you love. Denison also offers majors and concentrations in East Asian Studies, International Studies, Latin American and Caribbean Studies like COSEN (Carolinas-Ohio Science Educational Network), designed to help students of color and women to enter and succeed in the sciences and mathematics.


Explore the Black experience in Denison's Black Studies program, an interdisciplinary major that combines coursework in humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and fine arts to investigate the past, present and future of the worldwide African community.
