Program areas at Bates College

Higher Education: Bates College, widely regarded as one of the finest liberal arts colleges in the nation, is dedicated to the principle of active engagement. A 10-1 student-faculty ratio makes possible close collaborations in classroom and laboratory; the Bates learning experience is honed through seminars, research, service-learning, and the capstone of senior thesis. Typically, two-thirds of Bates' approximately 1,820 students on campus study abroad at some point during their academic careers at Bates. Co-curricular life is rich: most students participate in one of approximately 120 student-run clubs and organizations. Alumni frequently cite the capacities they develop at Bates for critical assessment, analysis, expression, aesthetic sensibility and independent thought. Close to 80 percent of students participate in career internships, and more than two-thirds of recent graduates enroll in graduate study within 10 years after graduation. (Approximately 1,820 students on-campus.)
