Graduate Faculty

Chestnut Hill College's professors are as devoted to their students' education and professional development as they are to perfecting their expertise in their own fields of study. Our outstanding faculty will provide you with knowledge and confidence, while the small class sizes will allow you to build strong peer-to-peer relationships with future colleagues. With a personalized education, you will be able to realize your individual academic ambitions while also building your community of fellow thought leaders.
