Connecting careers and the liberal arts
By definition, a liberal arts education entails intellectual exploration across subject areas. A Connecticut College education combines that study with a four-year career and professional development program to help you determine which of those subjects will form the foundation of your future.
The majority of our graduates work in management and business, education, nonprofit and advocacy, and marketing and communications. We also have many successful alumni working and studying in the fields of health and science, technology and computers, law and government, and psychology and counseling. Among the most popular graduate programs attended by recent alumni are those at Yale, Harvard, Columbia, New York University, Tufts and Boston University.
More than a century after our founding, Connecticut College continues to provide a life-changing liberal arts education that will prepare you for a life of meaning and success in work.
