Academics, Programs and Support

Academics

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 cultural groups. Every student is required to take at least one course in minority or women’s studies in their general education coursework.

Whatever major you choose, Denison’s diverse faculty and staff bring a world of perspectives to your college experience.

Student Organizations

A liberal arts education broadens your perspectives both in and out of the classroom. Throughout the year, we offer lectures and concerts that introduce our community to new art forms, cultures and ways of life. Our convocations and special events attract big names, and extensive extracurricular programming offers all students the chance to express themselves, explore their roots or expand their horizons.

Paving The Way: Orientation for multicultural students

The Paving the Way orientation program is open to all entering students, although our primary focus is to assist traditionally underrepresented student populations in transitioning to the academic, cultural, and social climate at Denison University.

This program begins three days before August Orientation and extends throughout the academic year. Sessions address academic success, ethnic and cultural identities, personal development, and an exploration of resources.
