A Culture of Collaboration

Our professors are a lot of things. They’re distinguished researchers and esteemed scholars. They’re sci-fi superfans, Broadway composers, and medieval masters. But students are more likely to call them “mentors” and “collaborators” because of their uncommon knacks for bringing subjects to life and connecting learning to the real world.

Meet Your Mentors

Your future professors are distinguished teachers, researchers, and scholars dedicated to academic excellence. They’re also passionate performers and artists who employ everything from comic books to prestige TV to engage their students and instill a curiosity for lifelong learning.
