Students together paying attention to a lecture

As one of the nation’s top-ranked liberal arts colleges, Washington & Jefferson College offers a rigorous and rewarding curriculum, characterized by small classes taught by full-time professors. With a student-to-faculty ratio of 10:1, our professors serve as mentors who will know your name on the first day of class and cheer loudly when it is called at graduation.

As a student at W&J, you have a lot to be proud of! Our pre-law and pre-health programs are internationally recognized, our Magellan Project allows students to travel the world exploring their research interests, and 94% of our students graduate within four years. And that’s just to name a few of the amazing things W&J students accomplish. Find out what else you can do in the classroom through our 32 majors and 27 minors!
