Amherst College Logo

Amherst College is a small, private liberal arts college. It is exclusively an undergraduate institution and is ranked as one of the best liberal arts colleges in the United States. It is unusual in its open curriculum – students do not take a core set of courses or have distribution requirements. It is part of the Five Colleges consortium that allows students to also attend classes at nearby Mount Holyoke College, Smith College, Hampshire College and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Amherst is a small, quintessential New England town.
