From Agnes Scott College

This is your liberal arts education, reimagined, at Agnes Scott College.

U.S. News & World Report ranked Agnes Scott #1 Most Innovative Liberal Arts College for five straight years and #1 in the nation for First Year Experience for four consecutive years. These accolades are due to our signature approach to the liberal arts SUMMIT. All students, regardless of major, take a rigorous curriculum focused on leadership, global citizenship and professional success.

You will engage in small classrooms (an average class size of 17) and in the community with over 60 clubs and organizations. You will also have the chance to explore the Atlanta community, as one of the best southern cities for culture, cuisine and internship opportunities.

We're committed to your success. 100% of our students earn some form of financial aid. 80% of our students choose to complete mentored research or internships during their four years, and 96% have a job or grad school placement one year post-graduation.
