If you graduate from Macalester, you might become a Nobel Peace Prize laureate or a professional magician--and you wouldn’t be the first grad to do either. You might write a bestselling novel or be chosen one of Popular Science’s “Brilliant 10 Young Scientists.”
At Macalester, a liberal arts college, we have 46 majors and programs to choose from and time for you to explore before you commit to a major. That major may lead you directly to your life’s work, or it may be an internship, study abroad, or a community connection that opens that window.
