The professors at PBSC are fantastic! I haven't had a bad professor since I began attendance here, only varying degrees of good! I have also never had a class taught by a TA. The classes are taught by professors only. They are excellent at keeping in touch with students and make excellent use of the school's website and email system. I found the professors here to be very helpful. They all have posted office hours on their syllabus as well as at their offices, they make time for students and are prepared to answer any questions or concerns you have. If you are not good at talking with teachers face-to-face, many teachers are also available via phone and/or email. I have found the workloads to be very manageable. Even when taking classes full time I was able to maintain a full time job. As long as you stay organized you won't have a problem. Scheduled due dates are often available on a professor's syllabus or online. Class sizes differ based on the type of class. However, I have never felt like I was lost amongst a see of faces. "Hands on" classes, such as art classes, have about 10-15 students, regular classroom classes have about 30 or less, and I have only had one auditorium style class but the number of students could not have been in an excess of 50.

Class size has up to 32 students in one class. School programs are very good, you should check it out.They have different programs for different majors. Workload depends on professors, sadly. School classes are good but not as great.
