Faculty & Research

Faculty at the College of General Studies are specialists in specific disciplinary areas such as quantum physics, English and American literature, European history, and communications, but they are also experts at teaching broad-based general education courses. This means that students have the benefit of studying with professors who know how to make difficult and diverse subjects engaging and accessible to freshmen and sophomores, but they also have the benefit of learning about their professor’s particular research areas.  Students have the opportunity to design directed studies or undergraduate research projects to work one-on-one with professors whose research areas interest them. In some cases these projects lead to conference presentations or publications.  Check out the faculty profiles to learn more about professors’ specific areas of expertise and their presentations and publications.
