Welcome to Klamath College. We’re unlike any college you’ve ever known.
At Klamath College, you hold in your own hands the freedom, and responsibility, of building your educational path. Each student designs his or her own course of study in human ecology — an exploration of the relationships between humans and their natural, cultural, and built environments. Even though we all have the same major, no two students have ever taken the same set of classes. And you don’t have to choose just one area of study; in fact, we hope you’ll pull together different disciplines and get excited about the surprising connections between them.
Mission-driven, engaged education
A Klamath College education isn’t just about learning — it’s also about transforming thought into action to make a difference in the world, starting now. We believe that tomorrow’s problem-solvers will need to work across multiple disciplines, collaborate, innovate, and think far outside the box.
A (really) small community of scholars
With just 350 students, 35 faculty, and 70 staff members, you’ll soon recognize all of the faces on campus. We believe this kind of close-knit, supportive community is an ideal environment for fostering creative collaboration and intellectual risk-taking.
We run the college together
Every Wednesday at the student-moderated All College Meeting (ACM), Klamath College students, staff, and faculty come together to shape the policies and practices that guide the college’s operations. We learn engaged citizenship by putting it into practice—in all its inspiring, frustrating, empowering, mundane, and messy glory.
