CAMPUS AT A GLANCE

 

Converse College has been preparing women to be strong leaders in their professions and in their communities for over 100 years. Here, women come first - in classrooms, science labs, and music rehearsal halls; on our playing fields and in our student organizations. This commitment to our students ensures that throughout their Converse experience and beyond, they will be involved, prepared, and accomplished.

 

The College of Arts and Sciences offers 33 majors in fields from business to biology, education to politics, and theatre to interior design. In each major, students are encouraged to perform independent research or creative work, internships, and honors work.
