Colorado College

Colorado College is a nationally prominent, four-year liberal arts college that was founded in Colorado Springs in 1874. The college operates on the innovative Block Plan, in which its approximately 2,100 undergraduate students study one course at a time in intensive and immersive 3½-week segments. The entire college runs one block at a time, with each block covering the same amount of material as a semester system. As a result, students can choose to study the film industry on location in Hollywood, then find Jupiter during evening labs in Barnes observatory, or traverse the natural wonders of the Southwest as a field archaeologist. Classes are small, hands-on, and highly focused. The college also offers a master of arts in teaching degree. In 2017, the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center became part of the college.
