Academics



Excellence in education

A Connecticut College education will help you develop skills for success in any field. You'll learn how to evaluate and synthesize information, solve complex problems, reason cogently and communicate effectively. 

Beyond the classroom, you can pursue your intellectual interests through college-funded internships, student-faculty research, service learning and study-abroad programs.

Our academic programs in the arts, sciences, humanities and social sciences are designed to shape ethical, informed citizens with a global perspective. View our college catalog and learn about the highlights of our academic program, including:

Our distinguished graduates have won Fulbright, Goldwater, Luce and other notable fellowships and scholarships. Connecticut College is consistently recognized as a top producer of Fulbright scholars with over 37 awarded in the past seven years.

For incoming students, the top anticipated majors are biology, English, government, international relations and psychology. Many students choose to double major or self-design their major.

In addition to major requirements, we have a General Education requirement of at least seven courses across a wide range of liberal arts disciplines. First-year students also take a first-year seminar, a small, intensive class with close student-faculty interaction.

Students may also earn state certification in elementary and secondary education.
