Collaborative, Solution-Focused Education

In the classroom, students work in groups to solve real-world scenarios — an approach that promotes critical thinking, problem-solving and communication skills. Our state-of-the-art facility, W.T. Brookshire Hall, lends itself to this level of collaboration between students and faculty. Within this scope, students also complete at least two years of prerequisites and one capstone course.
