Academics

A Rochester degree does not come easy. Meliora promotes high expectations, seriousness of purpose, and a rigorous approach to learning. We attract students who are smart, self-directed, intellectually curious, and often highly quantitative. Over the years we have transformed how students learn by engaging them in hands-on research as undergraduates and developing new models of teaching that our peers have adopted on an international scale.
