Agnes prides itself in its rigorous academics that challenge and engage students. With more than 30 undergraduate majors, nearly 30 minors, pre-professional programs, and dual-degree programs, Agnes is taking up the challenge to offer students a wide variety of classes as well as professional options. All of these programs are excellent and provide students with a rich liberal arts education. Class scheduling is fairly simple. Upperclasswomen have priority when it comes to choosing classes. It's an organized system that usually allows people to access the classes they would like to take. Once you get into the classes, the workload at Agnes is intense. There's rarely ever a break between papers and assignments, so it's important to learn how to manage time effectively.
Class sizes are small, so professors learn your name, and you'll receive a more hands-on approach to learning. Smaller class sizes allow students to personally know their peers, as well. The school's academic strength lies in its intelligent and gifted faculty. The professors Agnes hires are nothing but the best, and they exhibit their skills well in the classroom. Professors typically listen well to students and are able to communicate their expectations well. All of the professors are knowledgeable in their areas of study and are privy to share their knowledge through lectures in class as well as out-of-class talks. Professors are very personable. They often say hello to students outside of class and are active on campus.
