Our professors are among the foremost authorities in their fields. They work with students every day, in and out of class, as teachers, advisers and mentors.
Whether in classrooms, labs or offices—or even in the dining hall—our faculty are among the most approachable in higher education. Students work with them from the start of their first year up until graduation—and often beyond—to choose courses, conduct research and make career decisions. Students have partnered with professors to build special courses on climate change, the Amherst black experience and numerous other topics. There’s even a program that allows a group of classmates to take their professor to dinner in town, and the College pays.
