Fearless learning, forward thinking
New College of Florida is a public, four-year, residential honors college with more than 40 programs in the sciences, humanities, and social sciences. Our small class sizes and 7:1 student-faculty ratio promote frequent interaction between students and faculty. Hands-on learning is central to our programs, including flexible internship and research opportunities. To prepare students for their senior projects, faculty provide detailed performance evaluations every semester to highlight their achievements while pushing them to grow and develop.
