SPRING COLLEGE &
Leaders are made here
Washington & Jefferson College gives students an
exceptional education they can really use. Just outside
of Pittsburgh, Pa., W&J is proud to be one of the oldest
colleges in the United States, giving students the opportunity
to discover the leaders in themselves. For more than
200 years, our focus is on student success and building
leaders of character.
A Place to Thrive
Becoming one of tomorrow’s leaders starts with the
right education today, and at W&J, we’ll help you combine
your passion with one-of-a-kind research and internship
experiences to build the career you want. Our 32 majors
and 34 minors are led by expert faculty who take the time
to get to know you. They’ll do research right alongside
you in the classroom, and will help you connect with
alumni mentors and off-campus internships to get you the
professional experience you need. With a flexible liberal
arts approach to college, W&J helps you craft an education
that’s versatile, relevant, and completely personalized.
W&J is the place where you’ll thrive! We believe in
recognizing and rewarding students’ excellence in academic
achievements by offering a variety of merit-based
scholarships. Our signature W&J Thrive Scholarship
is all about rewarding you for your accomplishments
before coming to W&J, and for the outstanding work we
know you’ll continue to do as a student here! Starting at
$33,000/year, W&J Thrive is our highest merit scholarship
and is awarded to students committed to being leaders.
