About Williams College

Williams College has a long reputation of academic excellence. As part of the “Little Three,” an unofficial conference that also includes Wesleyan University and Amherst College, Williams offers elite academics through three divisions:

  • Language and Arts
  • Social Studies
  • Science and Mathematics

The school’s 25 departments offer more than 35 majors. Graduate programs in Policy Economics and History of Art are also available. Williams College maintains a small student-to-faculty ratio, allowing for a truly personalized classroom experience. Williams’ small class sizes and outstanding faculty are substantial reasons for its consistently high ranking among liberal arts colleges.

Student life at Williams is expansive for a small college. The campus features over 160 organizations, with plenty of funding available to start your own. Nearly 95% of students live on campus, so college life is vibrant and active.

Williams College’s admissions do not take financial need into consideration. All applicants are considered based on merit, not income. The school is also very selective, admitting about 20% of applicants each year on average.

Financial aid is available in the form of federal programs and institutional scholarships. Unlike many schools, Williams College does not offer merit scholarships; all scholarships are based on need.
