At Lyman Briggs College, faculty and staff operate under an educational philosophy based on two major themes: 1) students benefit from living and learning alongside others with similar interests, and 2) students benefit from bridging the gap between sciences and humanities. Students at Briggs work with internationally-recognized faculty to build a core foundation in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics while incorporating the history, philisophy, and sociology of science.
