Intellectually rigorous. Innovative. Engaging.
Listen for dolphin burst pulses. Breed corn in the campus greenhouse. Excavate artifacts. Study small particles with a nanospectrometer. Examine gender bias in children’s literature. Compose experimental music. Analyze the effects of oil shocks on the U.S. economy. Investigate DNA. Own your education.
We take the life of the mind seriously.
If a free exchange of ideas, highly individualized collaboration with faculty and in-depth thinking appeal to you, you belong at New College of Florida.
Chart Your Own Course: Choose from more than 40 majors (what we call "areas of concentration") or design a multi-disciplinary or special area of concentration. Explore personal interests and achieve your educational goals through independent projects, group study and research projects on and off campus.
With a 10-to-1 student/faculty ratio, you work closely with faculty, who serve as student advisors, mentoring you and collaborating with you along your academic journey, wherever it may take you.
You might train a manatee to receive veterinary care at Sarasota’s Mote Aquarium, present findings at a national conference or study and observe lemur behavior in nearby Myakka City. Or maybe you’ll join your biology professor on an expedition to study coral reef diseases in Honduras, travel to Germany to research the sleep habits of black birds, learn Punjabi in India or study the Kokama-Kokamilla peoples in the Peruvian Amazon.
At New College of Florida you’re part of an intellectual community that inspires and challenges you to pursue the limitless possibilities in your future.
