Dickinson is a selective, private college known for its innovative curriculum. Its mission is to offer students a useful education in the arts & sciences that will prepare them for lives as engaged citizens & leaders. The college offers 42 majors with an emphasis on international studies.
In 1783, Benjamin Rush, a revolutionary in both spirit and life, established Dickinson College with the intent of providing a different kind of liberal-arts education.
Here, students are encouraged to be actively engaged with the wider world and challenged to think differently and act boldly. Dickinsonians are guided by a core set of tenets—to be decisive, useful, curious and unafraid to take risks.
We produce critical thinkers who see how everything is connected. Graduates forever ready to make a difference.
This is how weve taught successful graduates of all kinds, from lawyers to researchers to writers to CEOs. Dickinsons brand of liberal arts has been around for more than 200 years for one reason—it works.
