Learn From the Best
When you enroll at Nazareth, you have access to professors and staff members who genuinely enjoy giving their time and guidance. Our 152 full-time faculty members—94 percent of whom hold a Ph.D. or the highest degree in their field—haven't stopped going to school either. They turn to Nazareth's Center for Teaching Excellence, one of the few centers in the country dedicated to innovative teaching, for ideas and resources to take your learning to a higher level.
