Allegheny College

Allegheny College attracts top students with unusual combinations of interests, skills and talents, including some they didn’t know they had. At Allegheny, we invite our students not to limit themselves — but instead to explore all of their interests.

Every Allegheny student takes courses in each division of knowledge — humanities, natural sciences and social sciences — declaring both a major and a minor (outside the division of their major) by the end of their sophomore year.

Students combine their interests and expand their concentrations beyond one division, developing the sort of big picture thinking that is in high demand in today’s global marketplace.

Nigeria needs a credible economic plan – not a confab
