Kenyon immerses you in the liberal arts and sciences, while giving you freedom to chart your own intellectual path. Academic life here rests on relationships between dedicated teachers who are top scholars and talented students who welcome the challenge of ideas. The tone is collaborative, friendly, generous, and open. We set high standards, and we work together—seriously and enthusiastically—to meet them.
You can choose from 31 majors within traditional academic departments, as well as from majors or concentrations within 13 interdisciplinary programs. Ask a Kenyon student about the College's greatest strengths, and you'll hear one answer over all others: the faculty. Your professors will inspire you, push you, and widen your horizons. They'll get to know you as a person; some will become true mentors, lifelong friends.
You'll also find an array of unique opportunities that take you beyond the classroom, ranging from editorial work with the Kenyon Review to archaeological excavations in Honduras. Dozens of off-campus study programs give you the chance to encounter other cultures. Whatever path you follow, you will be able to draw on an extensive academic advising system and many other resources for support.
