Connect To Purpose

Academics

Call your Ph.D. professors by their first names as you partner together to explore your interests, develop your passions and achieve your aspirations.

Experience the individualized attention you deserve from professors who are more like peers, pushing you to develop your strengths through critical thinking and strong writing – skills to last you a lifetime.

Exceed your expectations through hands-on experiences that put your knowledge into action and make you stand out in your chosen field.

Enrich your academic experience and expand your cultural perspectives through study abroad.

Explore issues relevant to you and society – ask your burning questions to local, regional and national speakers during convocations and lectures.

You’ll spend four years alongside faculty who are your mentors, advisers and potentially research partners, some of whom who will also be a reference, resource and friend for a lifetime.

Undecided Major Program
