Dickinson College

Dickinson is a nationally recognized liberal-arts college chartered in 1783 in Carlisle, Pa. Our distinctive liberal-arts approach translates into a competitive edge—95% of graduates are in a job, internship, graduate school or pursuing meaningful service within one year. With an enrollment of 2,100 students, Dickinson emphasizes small classes with extensive opportunities for research, fieldwork and internships in each of our 46 majors. Innovative programs range from neuroscience to data analytics to security studies, and Dickinson’s decidedly global curriculum includes 13 languages and a variety of globally oriented courses. Dickinson has one of the top off-campus study programs in the nation and was one of the first colleges in the country to achieve carbon neutrality.
