Intellectually rigorous. Innovative. Engaging.

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 nearly 40 majors (we call them 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.

Listen for dolphin burst pulses. Examine gender bias in children’s literature. Compose experimental music. Investigate DNA.

With a 10-to-1 student/faculty ratio, you work closely with faculty, who serve as advisors, mentoring you and collaborating with you along your academic journey, wherever it may take you.

Own your education

You might train a manatee to receive veterinary care at Sarasota’s Mote Aquarium. 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 are part of an intellectual community that inspires and challenges you to pursue the limitless possibilities in your future.
