A community of learners
Monmouth College feels like home. Each class feels like its own community. With average class sizes of 14 students, you will get to know your classmates and your professors. Don’t be surprised to get an invite to a professor’s home for a meal or a department picnic. We are a Fighting Scots family.
Step outside the classroom
We offer more than 50 programs and a general education curriculum designed to guide you toward realizing your personal and professional ambitions. But academic experiences don’t always take place in the classroom. Field trips, study-abroad programs and internships are the ways we encourage students to take what they learn in class to the rest of the world.
Change the world
We give you the tools to do amazing things. Students have conducted research on urban planning and placemaking in Myanmar; written and directed their own plays during FusionFest; developed innovative educational programs for rural schools through our TARTANS program; and built their own Brewster angle microscope for non-invasive analysis of cell membranes.
Our students will change the world. We’re just here to help them achieve it.

“To me, Monmouth just feels like home. Every professor I’ve talked to, every student I’ve engaged with, and at every event I’ve attended, I have always felt welcomed and like I belong here.”
“Monmouth is a small community inside a larger community. I can feel away from the small town of Monmouth, but I can also be highly involved in the town as well.”
“Monmouth is my home and offers me countless opportunities to grow academically and individually. The professors ensure students know that their door is always open, whether it be related to class or just life in general. There is never a lack of activity or energy on campus – it’s always buzzing!”
“I was scared of the idea of being lost in a class. I really like the individual attention with the teachers.”
“The people you meet, and bonds you form, are what sets Monmouth into a class of its own.”

“Monmouth offered me some world-class opportunities, along with the ability to conduct my own research and have great relationships with my professors.”

“I enjoy teaching at Monmouth because the small class sizes and emphasis on quality teaching allow me to focus more on my students.”
“I love working with our students because I see myself in them. They tend not to be entitled, and they typically don’t come from privileged backgrounds. I want their experience to be as impactful as my college was for me.”
“Monmouth students are eager, excited and willing to try new things about opportunities presented to them. They’re not as self-conscious as students at bigger schools sometimes are, and I’ve enjoyed tapping into that close-knit, community nature.”

“Our son was recruited to play lacrosse. Even though it was a blizzard outside, our first visit to campus was awesome. It’s nice to know if we have questions or concerns someone is there to help. Our son made a perfect decision. It’s a perfect fit!”
“The size of Monmouth is perfect for my daughter because she came from a smaller high school and she got several scholarships. She has fit in very well at Monmouth and she is very happy with her decision, as are her parents.”
“My daughter decided to go to Monmouth because of the individual support, the beautiful campus and small class sizes. She has participated in activities that she wouldn’t have had a chance to at a larger college.”
“As the parent of an out-of-state student, I was really worried about sending our only child to a college many states away. The day he arrived on campus Monmouth College opened their arms and hearts and took him in. Our son has made lifelong friends and Monmouth will always hold a special place in his heart.”
