Alice Lloyd College

Degrees & Majors

Crum ClassWhen a student graduates from Alice Lloyd College, he or she leaves with a degree recognized for its academic value. With a liberal arts degree from ALC, one will not only gain a deeper understanding for the arts and sciences, but will also be educated to become a lasting leader in one’s community. Through medicine, law, politics, education, and business, our graduates touch the lives around them.

Challenging our students to look within themselves, we give them the abilities and knowledge needed to shape their college, their community, and their world. At Alice Lloyd, an education is much larger than a degree … it’s studying abroad, serving on mission trips in Central America, or interning in Washington, D.C. It’s the opportunity to interact with professors one-on-one. It’s a chance to be “a step ahead of the pack” when entering the job market armed with valuable work experience and references gained through the Student Work Program. It’s the opportunity to receive graduate and professional scholarships to the University of Kentucky and other schools through the Caney Cottage Scholarship Program. But more than anything, it’s the chance to seize the day, take advantage of every single opportunity that presents itself, and take hold of one’s future.

Alice Lloyd students are accepted to many graduate and professional schools nationwide and hired by major employers throughout Appalachia; many schools and businesses recruit here. People are often surprised that such academic success can come from a small, private college in the mountains of southeastern Kentucky. But it comes as no surprise to us. With faculty from highly regarded institutions that have included Harvard, Yale, Cornell, and Penn State, it’s easy to understand where our academic strength begins.
