One of the strongest assets Puget Sound has is our faculty, a dynamic faculty with a national reputation for outstanding teaching and groundbreaking scholarship across the breadth of human knowledge.
So what does that mean to you? It means that our faculty teach their classes (not TAs). It means that our faculty cultivate long-lasting mentoring relationships with the students they teach. It means that our faculty care not only about your performance on the upcoming test, but about your overall experience at Puget Sound, and beyond. It means that our faculty will challenge you to expand your thinking and soar to heights you may not have thought possible, but they will be there to support you along the way.
With 93% of our faculty full-time, and 99% of our tenure-line professors holding doctorates (or equivalent), we have a wide range of expertise and experiences ready to share with you, and we are ready to challenge and support you on your academic journey. Our 12-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio means that you will never be a number in the crowd. You will know your teachers; they will know you. These relationships may extend past the four-year campus experience you have here at Puget Sound. Many of our alumni keep in touch with their professors for years.
