Luther offers over 60 majors, minors and pre-professional programs. Our rigorous and engaging liberal arts curriculum provides plenty of opportunity for you to study a number of different subjects. In fact, we encourage it!
You'll find that our top-notch professors are dedicated to teaching and truly care about their students. And our low student-to-faculty ratio of 12:1 ensures small class sizes. (At Luther you're not a number!) Teachers at Luther promote an “open door” culture, which makes them accessible to students—in fact, 95 percent of faculty choose to live within five miles of campus.
As a liberal arts college, Luther encourages an approach to learning that makes connections between subjects and also connects individual learning to the larger world. In this spirit, you will engage in an education beyond the classroom walls—through collaborative research with professors, study-away programs, and prestigious internships, to name just a few examples.
Integral to a Luther education is our signature Paideia program. Paideia is an interdisciplinary course series that strengthens community through shared academic experience. First-year students in the Paideia program share a common reading list and attend performances, events, and an annual lecture series together. The Paideia tradition continues for upperclass students with a course that focuses on ethics and values in the context of a specific major.
As a student at Luther, you have access to a variety of services to support you throughout your college career. A few of these are:
At Luther, the journey of education is a communal one, and the supportive learning community on campus consistently produces Fulbright scholars and other nationally competitive award winners. Luther College is also a Phi Beta Kappa institution, a distinction belonging to only 10 percent of higher-learning institutions nationwide. Luther also offer a distinctive Scholars program.
