The program is rounded out with a senior research project undertaken by every senior major.
Denison's Department of Economics is ranked among the nation's top economics programs for undergraduates by Change Magazine. The curriculum focuses on helping you to develop an understanding of the institutional, analytic and empirical framework within which economic decision-making occurs.
The advantage of the liberal arts as preparation for teaching is simply this: you will have a good, solid, general background and a well-developed foundation in education. Our Educational Studies major is for students who wish to prepare for a career in education in elementary or secondary schools, or in the broader community.
Students at Denison enjoy a curriculum in English that balances the need for broad introductory courses with abundant opportunities to focus on special topics. In our small classes, students find varied but uniformly passionate instruction in American, British, and world literature. And for more than 50 years, Denison students have studied the art and craft of creative writing through the Writing Program’s workshops in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction.
Environmental Studies is an interdisciplinary inquiry into the relationship between humans and the environment. It draws on work in natural science, life science, social science, humanities and the arts, to help students gain a deeper understanding, both of the environmental problems facing the world and of proactive opportunities for change.
