Amherst looks like the world, because our students come from 54 countries, including many places and populations historically underrepresented in higher education.
Our classes enroll fewer than 30 students. And with our open curriculum, classrooms are filled with engaged students, fully committed to the topic at hand.
Amherst College students can connect to a network of 22,500 alumni—people who live all over the world and are leaders in practically every field imaginable.
The seven priorities outlined in our strategic plan reaffirm our commitment to the liberal arts in an era of dramatic change, preparing our graduates to enter the world.
