Get to know us
A leader in the liberal arts since its founding in 1911, Connecticut College offers a different kind of education. Our Connections approach encourages students to ask personal and meaningful questions and explore answers by integrating courses from multiple disciplines, engaging in off-campus learning and sharing what they have learned with the larger community.
We’ve reinvented liberal arts education to produce creative, adaptive thinkers who are poised to tackle the world’s most complex problems.
About our students
Academics that defy narrow boundaries
At Conn, “academic rigor” isn’t just about the number of pages read. It’s about synthesizing multiple viewpoints into breakthrough ideas. 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.
