Connecticut College - Master's Degree
- Average Tuition USD 60,394
Connecticut College's history dates back to 1909 when Wesleyan University refused to offer admissions to women. As a result, many of the women at the time were looking to gain a higher education, and therefore a committee was formed to search for a suitable new site for a college. A hilltop in New London was chosen by the committee and a board of incorporators petitioned the State of Connecticut to open a college. The petition was granted in April 1911 and that’s how Connecticut College officially came into being.
Since its establishment Connecticut College has grown into a thriving private co-educational liberal arts college. The college attracts students by offering them rigorous academic programs and by fostering the intellectual, emotional, spiritual, creative and physical development of its students. At Connecticut College the students are provided with a close-knit environment as nearly 90% of them live on campus, and the staff, faculty and the students are dedicated to adhere to a system of governance. The college operates on the principle of 'shared governance', which means that the perspectives of all groups are kept in mind while making decisions.

How Connecticut College is unique
What's unique about Connecticut College was the nurturing of our relationships with our professors, at their offices and meals in the dorm. Learning continued outside the classroom. We learned critical thinking that is invaluable in all walks of life.

Connecticut College: Citizens for a Global Society
Connecticut College offers a place for everyone. It's strong system of shared governance enables students to proactively take charge of their education. The small class sizes allows students to forge strong relationships with professors and classmates and carry discussions and debates outside of the classroom. Connecticut College offers a range of social activities and events. The College has received recognition as a top producer of Fulbrights, one of the most LGBT-friendly campuses, and one of the more socially-active and global colleges. I learned a great deal in the classroom, but the best education I received was outside of the classroom through the activities participated in, life-long friends made, and ongoing dialogue with professors and classmates. I could not have asked for a better educational experience.
My years at Connecticut College were challenging: academically and socially. On both dimensions, I was pushed to think, accept, and push back in ways I hadn't accepted, nor known before. From somebody like me, coming from very diverse and larger cities, adjusting at Connecticut College is never easy; however, I only realize how good a job college did educating me, now that I am participating in the "real world." Don't be fooled by the smaller numbers of faculty in some of the departments; what matters is the level of engagement by each faculty; you can always do further studies on study away/abroad. Yes, as far as the professors go, everybody is correct: they are amazing! I still have intermittent contact with some of them; and, yes, they do remember me :)
