Faculty

Our faculty have expertise in German language and culture. They believe strongly in direct interaction with students, and many of our students develop lasting relationships with faculty that continue well beyond the four years spent at the college. This close link between students and faculty is one of the distinct advantages of an education at a small, liberal arts college like Saint Anselm.
