The value of a Connecticut College education
Connections is Conn’s reinvention of liberal arts education.
It’s a new kind of curriculum: Students integrate their interests into a meaningful educational Pathway, which carries them through college and into a fulfilling, effective career and life.
Each day presents a shift—a new technology, an economic turnaround, a global event—that requires inventive, resourceful and resilient leadership. Through Connections, our innovative approach to liberal arts education, Connecticut College is educating the students who will become those leaders.
Our students learn to collaborate, innovate and solve new problems in a global, interconnected and complex world. When they graduate, they are prepared for successful lives and careers, and they're ready to lead.
