Connecticut College offers a distinctively integrative liberal arts education. Here “academic rigor” isn’t just about the number of pages our students read or write: it’s about synthesizing multiple viewpoints into breakthrough ideas. 

Conn students learn to look beyond typical narratives and assumptions and build strong connections among the many aspects of their college experience: the languages they are learning; the disciplines they are studying; the communities they are inhabiting; their work in class and in the world; and ultimately, their lives after college. They learn how to make an impact—and how to inspire others to do so, too.
