Academic Excellence

The heart of the CSB/SJU undergraduate experience is rooted in a lively and sustained engagement between students and faculty -- both in the classroom and beyond.

  • Professors actively encourage students to take responsibility for and own their education.
  • Discussion-based classes and active learning teaching practices typify CSB/SJU classrooms and curricular challenges.
  • Experiential educational opportunities in study abroad, service learning, internships and undergraduate research, as well as learning communities and residential hall learning programs are central to a full CSB/SJU learning experience.
