Curiosity & Persistence

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.

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.
