The Denison Difference
We call it “the Denison Difference.”
At Denison, you get a liberal arts education, plus pragmatic skills for the workplace. Employers want people who can assess a situation, ask probing questions, research the issue and propose solutions. They also want you to know how to master an excel sheet, manage a meeting, and budget your time. Students in every major learn these critical skills. It’s our secret sauce, and we’ve got the data to prove it.
