Academics at Mount Holyoke
Mount Holyoke exists to open minds. It’s where you explore new ideas, let your imagination run wild, debate vigorously, and have the freedom to examine any topic or issue—no matter how controversial or polarizing. And like the brave, bold women who have come before you, we promise you this: After four years, everything will be different—including you.
Our philosophy is simple. You’ll join smart, talented, and opinionated women from all over the world (2,300 from 46 states and nearly 80 countries). Each arrives with divergent ideas, beliefs, and worldviews. Together, in small classes led by award-winning professors, you will debate and discuss, challenge your classmates and yourself. With 50 majors and hundreds of courses to choose from, Mount Holyoke gives you the opportunity to discover your passion—and go after it.
Along the way, you will be pushed to think critically and become a fearless advocate for yourself and what you believe in. And when you graduate, you’ll be prepared to not just face change—but to lead it.
