Amherst College educates men and women of exceptional potential from all backgrounds so that they may seek, value, and advance knowledge, engage the world around them, and lead principled lives of consequence.
Amherst brings together the most promising students, whatever their financial need, in order to promote diversity of experience and ideas within a purposefully small residential community. Working with faculty, staff, and administrators dedicated to intellectual freedom and the highest standards of instruction in the liberal arts, Amherst undergraduates assume substantial responsibility for undertaking inquiry and for shaping their education within and beyond the curriculum.
Amherst College is committed to learning through close colloquy and to expanding the realm of knowledge through scholarly research and artistic creation at the highest level. Its graduates link learning with leadership—in service to the College, to their communities, and to the world beyond.
Amherst’s open curriculum has no core or general education requirements. Beyond courses for the major and the First-Year Seminar, students are free to design their own curriculum. With this freedom comes the responsibility to choose wisely and carefully—plus the opportunity to explore learning as never before. Faculty members, faculty advisors and fellow students offer guidance to students at every stage to help them explore fully the liberal arts.
