The Curriculum

At Colorado College, you learn how to learn. And that goes far beyond four years and a diploma or two.

We're not into wasting time.

Four years of slaving over hot Bunsen burners, Faulkner short stories, and messy pottery wheels - just for this diploma. It seems like a lot of work for a piece of paper. Is this it?

Honest truth? A college education can be four years of collecting facts, but it can also be four years of unearthing passions, defining yourself, and discovering the world. At Colorado College, we prefer the combination.

Stop memorizing. Start learning.
