School Overview

Allegheny College, a private liberal arts school located in Meadville, Pennsylvania, enrolls over 2,100 undergraduate students each year. Founded in 1815, Allegheny is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSCH).

Allegheny encourages “unusual combinations” when it comes to pairing majors and minors, both of which Allegheny students are required to declare. For example, a student’s major can be natural sciences, humanities or social sciences but a minor must be selected from a division different from their major division. A student who enrolls in a humanities major such as English, art or religious studies, would still take 20-24 credits of science-related study if they decided to pick their minor within the natural sciences division´┐Ż Even if they don’t, they are still required to pick two courses from within the natural science areas and one of the science courses must be a laboratory class. Math courses are not a requirement at Allegheny but recommended. The end result of the college’s interdisciplinary approach is reflected in the career paths of Allegheny graduates.

Allegheny has been described as an innovative and up and coming Tier 1 liberal arts school. U.S. News and World Report describe Allegheny College as a “A+ School”. Previously ranked 94th among 266 liberal arts colleges in the United States, Allegheny now sits at number 82, meaning it placed in the top 50% of all liberal schools and thus qualifies as a Tier 1 school. This is an improvement from former years when Allegheny was described as a second tier liberal arts college.
