One distinctive advantage of studying at SUNY Fredonia is that faculty - and not graduate students - teach all courses. Our faculty members have a vast experience in teaching, which is always supported by rigourous research and a diverse body of innovative scholarly work. Faculty members are talented individuals coming from different backgrounds and distinct areas of expertise in the social and natural sciences, humanities and the arts. In the classroom, instructors employ an array of pedagogical methods to facilitate the learning process and engage students in research projects.
