From Allegheny College

At Allegheny, we take a mind over major approach to learning. Here, it’s not rigid career paths or constant lecture halls. It’s exploring your passions, discovering the world around you, and actually learning about what you’re interested in.

We ask our students to declare themselves, twice. First pick a major of your choice. Then choose a minor you’re interested in from an alternate discipline. This approach keeps minds wide open to fresh possibilities, new understanding, and different perspectives. Because if you want to be the kind of person who stands out in life, you need to learn outside the lines.
