Half of the classes offered by the Mellon College of Science (MCS) have fewer than 25 students, including topical seminars for freshman. With approximately 700 students in MCS and a student to faculty ratio of 8:1, you will have the opportunity to build relationships with the faculty and with your classmates, who are really excited about science and passionate about their learning.
