About Hood College

A small, intimate school, Hood College offers a highly personalized academic and social environment as well as numerous opportunities both within and beyond the classroom.

Located in Frederick, Maryland, Hood College’s small campus is made up of beautiful historic buildings and natural beauty.

Academics at Hood are based in the liberal arts and include more than 25 major subjects at the undergraduate level and over a dozen master’s degrees.

With a low faculty ratio and a relatively small student body classes remain small giving students optimum one-on-one time with professors. This is particularly exciting since most professors hold a terminal degree.

However, while small, Hood is not lacking in opportunities. Encouraging students to do internships in their field of study, Hood can often offer positions at such places as American Red Cross, CNN, the French Embassy, National Geographic, the Library of Congress and the White House.

Most students live on campus in one of Hood’s residence halls. This gives them the chance to regularly take advantage of Hood’s student life offerings. These include more than 60 student clubs and organizations, honors societies and NCAA athletics.

The admission requirements to Hood vary depending on whether one is a freshman, transfer student or graduate school applicant.

Financial aid is available to eligible students who require tuition assistance to attend school.
