Programs of Study

With more than 40 majors that cover a range of fields, you're sure to find your interests. We award the following degrees: Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), Bachelor of Music (B.M.), and Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.).

Liberal Arts

A foundation in the liberal arts provides Coe students with a well-rounded education. Students have the opportunity to experience a variety of subjects outside their program of study.

Faculty

Your classes will be taught by our involved and committed faculty, 94 percent of whom hold the highest degree in their field. This means your classes will be taught by experienced professionals who have in-depth knowledge of their subjects—not teaching assistants.

Off-Campus Opportunities

Your education at Coe won't just happen in the classroom—you'll have numerous opportunities to engage in off-campus study such as: the Coe Wilderness Field Station in the Boundary Waters of northern Minnesota; study abroad in countries such as Germany, Spain, Costa Rica, and Japan; participate in Coe's New York Term, where you can experience the life of an artist firsthand. The opportunities are endless.

Rankings

Coe is one of the finest liberal arts colleges in the U.S., and is listed in college guidebooks such as The Princeton Review's "377 Best Colleges" and "Peterson's Guide to Selective Colleges." Barron's "300 Best Buys in College Education" ranks Coe as "Very Competitive."
