It is a mixed residential and commuter campus comprised of approximately 600 students. The student-centered faculty and staff are dedicated to excellence in teaching and learning. Students and faculty at Penn State Beaver have all the resources of a major research university at their disposal in a small campus atmosphere. Class sizes are small, and the student/faculty ratio is low, so students can receive much individual attention. Students also have opportunities to participate in undergraduate research projects supervised by faculty members. The campus offers baccalaureate degrees in Administration of Justice, Business, Communications, Information Sciences and Technology, Biology, Project and Supply Chain Management, and Psychology. In addition, students at the Beaver campus are offered the first two years of study for most of Penn State’s approximately 160 academic majors. The student body is largely comprised of traditional aged students, although the campus makes a concerted effort to expand programs for non-traditional students.
