The Geosciences program at Denison provides a comprehensive geoscience undergraduate education through the combination of classroom, laboratory and field experiences. Our small classes promote close faculty-student cooperation and a sense of camaraderie. Students gain a strong sense of real-world geology, earth resources, and land use through frequent field trips.
Many of the Western world’s most important works of literature, philosophy, music, art history, theology, psychology, chemistry, physics, engineering and medicine are written in German. Whether developing the four basic skills of aural comprehension, speaking, reading and writing, or examining culture, civilization, and literature, the study of German at Denison, within the Department of Modern Languages, provides an exercise in cultural and linguistic concepts that opens new vistas on the world.
At Denison, research is a powerful tool to learn about the world and yourself. Whether you tackle a project in astronomy or art, physics or philosophy, every student, in every discipline, has the opportunity to explore, encounter, examine, discover, demonstrate, and investigate. As part of our research programs, Denison offers a unique research residency program in Gilpatrick House, which is open to students involved in research as Summer Scholars, Senior Research Scholars, or other intensive research programs.
Within the Department of Classics, the major and minor in Greek focuses on the language and culture of ancient Greece from the Mycenaean world of Olympian gods, kings and heroes, through the cultural and intellectual domination of the democracy of fifth century Athens, to the Hellenistic empire and legacy of Alexander the Great. The study of Greek enables students to read the original works that have defined western literature and philosophy, from the epics of Homer to the dialogues of Plato.
