Juniata College Top Questions

What are your classes like?


Some classes, like Organic Chemistry, are very large, but most classes have fewer than thirty people. In small classes, students get a lot of one-on-one interaction with their professors. Even in large classes, the professors are approachable and willing to answer questions. The classes can be challenging. Many science majors are required to take difficult classes in their Freshman year, weeding out the students who wouldn't be able to handle it. However, the classes can be worth it if you really want to learn.


Classes are typically small, except for some intro level classes. Even those are never over 200 kids. Classes are usually lecture based, but class participation is highly encouraged. The class format will vary depending on the class.
