Working at Beloit College

Beloit College was founded in 1846, when Wisconsin was still a territory. The early curriculum was built on the classical tradition, but students were given an unusual amount of freedom to choose their own courses. Today, Beloit is recognized for its longstanding commitment to curricular innovation, and its first-year initiatives and international education programs.

The Beloit College community is diverse and noted for its passionate engagement with ideas and the world. Its 1200 students are from nearly every state, the District of Columbia, and more than 40 nations. Twenty percent of its students are non-Caucasian; ten percent come from countries other than the United States. No more than ten percent of a graduating class is represented in any one of Beloit's majors.

98% of Beloit's 103 full-time faculty members hold a Ph.D. or the highest degree in their field. Teaching is the faculty's highest priority but all professors are active scholars and artists. Many are leaders in educational reform. Professors serve as mentors, guides, and partners on research projects and academic work. A strong tradition of student-teacher collaboration contributes to the college's lively intellectual community.

Beloit offers more than fifty majors, more than thirty minors, and a number of dual-degree and pre-professional programs. A flexible curriculum, grounded in rigorous study encourages independent research, fieldwork, and collaboration with peers and professors. Coursework is interdisciplinary, experiential, and global in scope. The average class size is 15 students; Beloit's student-to-faculty ratio is 11:1.

Beloit's wooded forty-acre campus includes twenty-eight buildings in a range of architectural styles; four buildings are listed on the National or State Register of Historic Places. The campus is marked by winding pathways, expansive lawns, displays of public art, and ancient Indian mounds.

The college's academic facilities include the internationally recognized Logan Museum of Anthropology, the Wright Museum or Art, a state of the art performing arts complex and research labs equipped with advanced technology. Beloit offers more than thirty international programs, dozens of domestic study programs, and hundreds of internships and field study programs.
