Academics Rating

My classes are adequate number of students per class, not overloaded. The departmental policy requires that all faculty and staff are actively involved in the process of evaluating candidate and program performance. Program examinations within the department are scheduled annually prior to the beginning of the school term, where faculty rotate the responsibility of test administration and scoring. My professors so far have ensured that I am acquiring as much knowlege to apply to field of study.
