The Bridgewater Experience

Print View

Your Bridgewater Experience is a network of connections. You’ll build connections to big ideas, great mentors, inspiring classmates and professional experiences. You’ll learn and grow in ways you never thought possible. And you’ll graduate prepared to lead and build community – wherever you go in life.

Bridgewater offers bachelor of arts and bachelor of science degrees in more than 60 majors and minors and several master’s degree programs, all of which have opportunities for accelerated undergraduate + graduate degree completion. Through personalized advising and collaboration, we’ll make sure your academic journey never hits a dead end.

Learning at Bridgewater College is all about making connections between the classroom and the outside world. Whether it’s through a May Term class, a semester-long study abroad program or through the opportunities to experience cultural diversity on campus, you’ll find new ways to learn through the lens of other cultures.

Your classes will embrace the open exchange of ideas that lead to new understanding and knowledge, while preparing you to think critically and engage in civil discourse. You’ll have the opportunity to work one-on-one with faculty mentors and engage in personalized independent study and research.

With 80 clubs and organizations, everyone has an opportunity to be involved on campus, and almost a third of the student body participates in intercollegiate athletics at the NCAA Division III level.

As a Bridgewater student, you will be prepared to live and work in community with others, to thrive as an educated citizen and an ethical, selfless leader, and to be an active participant in a global society, with respect for the dignity and worth of every person.
