The University of Rochester is one of the country's top-tier research universities. Our 158 buildings house more than 200 academic majors, more than 2,000 faculty and instructional staff, and some 9,300 studentsÃƒâ€˜approximately half of whom are women.
Learning at the University of Rochester is also on a very personal scale. Rochester remains one of the smallest and most collegiate among top research universities, with smaller classes, a low 9:1 student to teacher ratio, and increased interactions with faculty. Education at Rochester is guided by the philosophy that students learn best when they love what they study. That is why the Rochester CurriculumÃƒâ€˜unique in higher educationÃƒâ€˜has no required subjects. Students in Arts, Sciences, and Engineering pursue a major in one of the three great divisionsÃƒâ€˜humanities, social sciences, and natural sciencesÃƒâ€˜and complete a cluster of three or more related courses in the two areas outside their major. The result is an education that reflects students' priorities. Source: www.rochester.edu
