From Monmouth College

Monmouth is a special place. We’re not totally sure what the perfect recipe for college life is, but we’re pretty sure it includes a heaping cup of a campus that feels like home, an excellent liberal arts education, great relationships with faculty, with a dash of bagpipes.

We are a private, residential, national liberal arts college, offering more than 50 majors and minors. Our small, seminar-style classes, awesome internship and study-abroad opportunities, and winning athletics programs make Monmouth the perfect place to continue your academic journey.

As a community of learners, Monmouth strives to sustain an environment that is value-centered, intellectually challenging, aesthetically inspiring (hello, beautiful campus!) and culturally diverse.

Monmouth is the liberal arts in action.
