The Connecticut River Valley Before Amherst College offers an interdisciplinary look at the geology, history, politics, culture and economy of the region out of which Amherst College grew. The program kicks off with an optional private tour and lecture at Historic Deerfield, and then comes back to campus for a series of lectures and presentations highlighting the scholarship of Amherst faculty, alumni, students and our world-class museums. We can't wait to welcome you back to campus!
The registration fee for the program and meals (lunch and dinner Friday; breakfast and lunch on Saturday) is $75. There will be an additional $25 fee for those attending the Historic Deerfield tour, which includes round-trip bus transportation from Amherst to Deerfield, and your entrance fee.
Note: Our spring program is anticipated to be held in April 2018.
