Academics at Briar Cliff


A liberal arts education.

Real life isn’t divided into academic disciplines.  It’s a mixed bag of art and science and math and history and communication, all connected in a million different ways. At Briar Cliff, studying liberal arts along with your chosen field of study will prepare you for more than a career — it will prepare you for life.

Professors who know you by name.

Briar Cliff faculty are published authors, Fulbright Scholars, performers at Carnegie Hall and contributors to the Human Genome Project. But most importantly, they care about your success as a student. Our 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio also leads to lasting relationships. Look around campus, and you'll find students and professors teaming up on research, working side-by-side on service projects and even grabbing lunch together in the cafeteria.

Preparation for career success.

Your diploma isn't the end of your Briar cliff experience. In fact, it's just the beginning. That's why 95 percent of Briar Cliff students are employed or attending a graduate school within six months of graduation.
