Washington & Jefferson College is one of the most venerable institutions in the United States of America. Founded in 1781 by a group of pioneering Presbyterian ministers, the College is located in Washington, Pennsylvania, just 30 miles south of Pittsburgh, and provides undergraduates with a top-ranked four-year, co-ed liberal arts and sciences education. 


Practical research experience is a vital part of an education in any scientific discipline, and we’re proud to say that Washington & Jefferson College offers a variety of research options for students to work with faculty. The curricula for both the natural and social sciences heavily feature lab courses, and students are also encouraged to pursue independent study opportunities in which they work one-on-one with our professors in the lab.


The Office of Career Services assists students in integrating their liberal arts education with their career aspirations. In addition, the office engages students as active participants in their career development. We facilitate the connection between students and alumni mentors to provide opportunities to explore and interact with professionals in a variety of career fields.
