As America’s sixth-oldest college, Moravian College has been a little revolutionary from the start. The College has been pushing boundaries in small ways that have big—and lasting—impacts since 1742. That’s when a 16-year-old girl founded Moravian College as the nation’s first school to educate women. Moravian College, to this day, gives more than 2,000 undergraduate and graduate students eye-opening, heart-racing ways to discover their own little revolutionary spirits.
At Moravian College, a liberal arts education is the foundation for every program, from accounting and art to math and management. This provides our students with the freedom to own their education. To choose from more than 55 academic programs, including majors, minors, tracks, and pre-professional programs. Get hands-on, in-the-field opportunities, like helping elephants in Thailand and interning with NASA. Our students work one-on-one with professors on SOAR (Student Opportunities for Academic Research) projects. They can study abroad in more than 20 countries, including Argentina, Germany, and Japan. And they participate in programs like Add-Venture, which allows first-year students who have a clear focus to accelerate past first-year requirements in order to explore multiple interests.
The College awards $42 million annually in institutional-funded grants and scholarships and 99 percent of students receive some form of financial aid. Plus, every first-year student receives a MacBook Pro and iPad to level the educational playing field and get ready for the tech-savvy world. Moravian College is always growing, from the addition of state-of-the-art facilities like the Sally Breidegam Miksiewicz Center for Health Sciences, to the creation of cutting-edge programs like the fully online master of science in predictive analytics.
Moravian College has a variety of ways for students to unleash their inner go-getters outside of class. There are more than 80 clubs and organizations, from service and Greek life to performing arts and campus communications.
Being a little revolutionary has taken Moravian College (and its students) a long way. Ninety-eight percent of the College’s graduates find a job or begin graduate school within ten months of graduating. Newly-minted alumni land jobs or head to grad school at places like IBM, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Georgetown, and University of Pennsylvania.
