Moravian College invites its 1,600 students to pursue their passions and expand their world through more than 50 majors and programs that provide a broad-based liberal arts education. As the sixth-oldest college in the country, we have a long and successful history of educating and inspiring leaders in a wide variety of fields, which shows in our results: 90 percent of our graduates are either employed or attending graduate school within six months after graduation, and 73 percent earned their degrees in four years, higher than the national average.
The strength of our academic majors and the programs that support them are known and respected across the region as our alumni become leaders in the fields of finance and business, medicine, law, education, and more. Many of our students create their own majors and courses of study, working one-on-one with a faculty mentor, who is, in many cases, recognized nationally for work in their field. Student-faculty research often results in students who publish or present their findings in national conferences.
Through internships, fieldwork, study-abroad, and research opportunities supported by one of the country’s most robust general education programs, Moravian students acquire the skills and experience to compete in a challenging global economic and cultural climate. This hands-on learning approach reinforces classroom work and gives it immediate relevance to the student’s life and work.
We encourage all students to find and pursue their passions through many diverse opportunities available here. Moravian has more than 70 clubs and organizations, and our strong sports, music, and arts programs offer healthy physical and creative outlets for every student.
Our philosophy is holistic; we believe that by exposing our students to a wide range of information and experiences, they will graduate with everything they need to more deeply enjoy life, work, and their role in the world, having discovered on their own terms what they feel passionate about and what gives them great joy.
