Bachelor's programmes



Founded as an academy in 1853 by the Presbyterian Church, Monmouth College’s initial financial support came from local leaders—many of whom were not Presbyterian—who appreciated the benefits that a strong academic institution would bring to the frontier town of Monmouth. That broad local support continues to this day.
