The student:faculty ratio is 7:1, and the academic year consists of two four-course semesters plus a one-course January term.
On their way to a bachelor of arts degree, Williams students major in a core area of study.

Still other opportunities exist for students to pursue emerging fields, take special classes, develop their own majors, and take part in experiential education or off-campus study.
Williams is accredited by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (CIHE) of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
