Our Faculty and Students

Bucknell faculty and students are engaged learners, responding to today's problems and shaping future solutions. They take advantage of Bucknell's unique combination of a liberal arts university with strengths in professional fields of Engineering, Management, Education and Music.

How We Meet the Challenge

With over 3500 students, a 9:1 student faculty ratio, and more than 50 majors, Bucknell is big enough to challenge our students academically, and small enough to provide mentoring and support for meeting those challenges.
