We prefer defining our own path for discovery.
This is your education. Imagine what happens when you have the freedom to explore combinations of academic interests, issues within society, and other parts of the world? When it happens alongside the support and resources you’ll find at Grinnell, we think you uncover an intellectual journey that’s never done before.
The Academic Experience
At Grinnell, you plot your own academic path. With no core curriculum, general education, or distribution
requirements, you’re free to explore and specialize as you choose. From the First-Year Tutorial and First Year-Experience: Connections through Mentored Advanced Projects and advanced seminars, you’ll discover what it means to learn like a Grinnellian.
At Grinnell, you never have to go it alone. As you grow your interests and advance further in your area of study, you’ll have multiple advisers, resources, and networks to support you, every step of the way.
