Randolph College is committed to excellence in the liberal arts and sciences. The College’s academic program helps students build a solid foundation for their lives through broad exposure to the ideas and methods of many fields of study, as well as the depth of focus in their chosen majors. The liberal arts foster the critical thinking and creativity necessary to address the problems faced by individuals, industries and nations in the modern world.
Randolph students graduate with more than a degree. They leave our campus with the knowledge, skills, and experiences that prepare them to be successful. They enter the workforce and graduate school in a wide variety of fields from business to politics and from arts to education. Wherever they go, they are prepared to make a difference.
Randolph College offers small classes taught by accessible, excellent professors. Students also work closely with their faculty advisors to chart a course toward their academic and professional goals. The learning environment is guided by an Honor Code based on mutual respect and responsibility for the students themselves and for their peers, helping to strengthen students’ moral, ethical, and social responsibility.
A Randolph education exposes students to ideas and cultures from around the world. Study abroad is an important part of this exposure. Our flagship study abroad program, The World in Britain: Randolph@Reading, gives students the opportunity to explore Britain while also studying at the University of Reading, one of the top universities in the world. The College is affiliated with other study abroad programs. Students also can take advantage of The American Culture Program—which is like study abroad, at home.
Because strong writing skills are necessary for success both in college and after graduation, Randolph values and evaluates writing beyond the general education level. Faculty assess the writing competence of all students in every course each semester, and all disciplines emphasize quality writing. Each year, exemplary student writing in a variety of disciplines is published in The Jack, the journal of academic writing.
