Lafayette advisers provide expert knowledge and insight to students. They are an integral part of the College as they are familiar with policies & procedures, available for support, and openly communicate with students and faculty members.
Students at Lafayette are part of a broader academic community, with a shared set of values and assumptions, and united by the common goals of acquiring and advancing knowledge. Certain violations of the community’s standards clearly rise to the level of academic dishonesty.
Our interdisciplinary curriculum transcends academic boundaries and gives you the breadth and freedom to study what you're passionate about.
Common Course of Study
The Lafayette Common Course of Study (CCS) was revised by the faculty in 2012 to create an all-inclusive core.
Pursing a graduate or professional degree is an important decision that requires significant planning. For students exploring graduate school options, there are graduate school advising liaisons in each department.
All students are eligible to register for one internship course. Normally, first-year students and sophomores are not eligible for participation in an internship program, and no credit may be given ex post facto for internships.
Scholarships and Fellowships
Dean Goldberg is dedicated to working closely with students, faculty, and the Graduate and Fellowship Advisory Committee to ensure that scholarship and fellowship program requirements are not just met, but that applications are worthy of serious consideration.
Lafayette students have many opportunities to study abroad on semester, winter, and summer programs. There are also possibilities to conduct funded research abroad, and to participate in non-credit bearing activities such as service learning and internships abroad.
