The Dean Difference is about small class sizes, personalized attention, and individualized learning. At Dean College we meet students where they are and get them where they want to be to achieve their academic goals and career dreams.
We believe in a multi-layered approach that requires students to integrate core knowledge and marketable career skills with real-world learning and internship opportunities.
The majors at Dean College are structured to ensure that students receive the appropriate knowledge base in their area of interest to prepare for what's next - employment, graduate school or the transition from a two-year associate degree program to a four-year bachelor's degree program.
College is about the opportunity to explore, which is why the Dean Curriculum is designed to provide time for exploration through electives. Students may utilize electives to try something completely new or further enhance their depth of knowledge in their primary subject area. For bachelor's degree students, electives also provide ample opportunity to pursue a minor or double major.
The Dean Curriculum is designed especially to help students build their knowledge base with an eye on finding a job. Our courses involve hands-on learning through case studies, problem-based assignments, guest speakers, excursions into the field and laboratory application. These experiences culminate in a required capstone internship for all bachelor's degree students. In addition, students are encouraged to pursue multiple internships to build their resume and complement the knowledge acquired through their coursework.
