Since our graduate program is not large, students are usually in small classes. In fact, the student-faculty ratio is about one graduate faculty member for every six students.

They spend time with students outside of class, meeting for informal study groups, organizing trips, and advising thesis projects and research. Graduate students are considered junior colleagues of the faculty.
