Decide where you want to make a difference.
Allegheny will prepare you.
As a liberal arts college, Allegheny has as its first concern intellectual growth. The curriculum and graduation requirements are designed to provide educational depth as well as intellectual breadth. Successful completion of Allegheny’s four-year program leads to the degree Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science.
Curiosity & Persistance
An education in the liberal arts and sciences gives you more choices, more opportunities, and, yes, more challenges.
Allegheny is one of the few liberal arts colleges in the country that will ask you to choose both a major and a minor. The scientist who can present her research in an engaging yet persuasive manner will be more successful in her career; likewise, the international aid worker who can quickly integrate the latest quantitative data will be that much more effective in his work.
No core curriculum!
Unlike most colleges and universities, Allegheny does not require a prescribed set of courses that all students must complete in advance of beginning their major. Rather, you work closely with your advisors to choose a certain number of courses from each division—the Humanities, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences divisions, and Interdivisional programs.

Self-Designed Majors & Minors
Students at Allegheny can design their own majors in cases where their academic, personal, and professional interests are not met by the combinations of standard majors and minors.
