Academics

Dive deep into the books, laboratories and art studios that will shape your life and enable you to shape the world.

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.

“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!”

“From day one, people on campus were a family – and he felt like he was a member of that family, not just a number. He’s a big-city-kind-of-kid, but he felt like he truly belonged on this small campus and in this community.”

Tammy Simmons

“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.”

Kent Barrington

“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.”
