The bedrock of SBS is our impassioned, inspired, and intellectually diverse faculty. We’re renowned for innovative and interactive teaching methods and our ability to introduce research into the classroom. Our emphasis is teaching students to not only observe the world with a critical eye, but to engage with it in meaningful ways. In a large university setting, our classes are typically small, with a student/professor ratio of 16:1.
