Majors

Career Channels and an Advanced Mentoring Program

We’ve reimagined college advising. AMP mentors begin working with students months before they arrive on campus to support their progress through the first two years. Innovative Career Channels provide access to internships, field experiences, and professional networks, creating possibilities across majors to address real-world issues. Beloit students graduate confident, focused, and employable.

    Beloit College changed my life! The campus is absolutely magical and enjoyable though all four seasons. The classes prepare you for critical thinking and setting yourself apart from others in the 'real world.' Beloit offered many internship and research opportunities for all majors and departments (even for an English major, like myself) which helped me for my career after Beloit. I made amazing connections with caring professors and amazing people over a nice meal in our dining hall. Campus was always alive with music and students playing frisbee on the quad. There were always lectures, movies and fun student-lead events to attend during the week and weekend. It's like nowhere else!

    Beloit College has the best professors! They are always willing to help and put their students first. I learned so much, not just academically, but also of different values and backgrounds from my peers. The college provides great financial aid packages and will work around each student to accommodate their needs. They opened the powerhouse recently too, which has been a very exciting feature. The college now has a great recreational facility that has updated gyms, a pool, and study rooms. The local area has also been improving in recent years and now has more dining options as well as cute little boutiques. I loved going to the farmers market on the weekend during the warmer months too. I'm proud to be a Beloit College alumni. I will forever cherish the people that I met there and the undergrad experience I had.
    Beloit College is an excellent liberal arts school with a lot of heart, character, and freedom to be as weird as you want to be! For someone looking for a big school centering around sports and parties, this isn't it. Beloit has those, but they're smaller and quirkier. The small student body allows for close and quick student connections, as well as small class sizes and regular one-on-one time with the faculty (who all go by their first names). The faculty are dedicated teachers and endlessly supportive. The network of former Beloiters is also strong and it's not uncommon for alumni to reach out to Beloit first when seeking job candidates.
