Reed College

Founded in 1908 in southeast Portland, Oregon, Reed College is a coeducational, independent liberal arts and sciences college. Referred to as one of the most intellectual colleges in the country, Reed is known for its high standards of scholarly practice, creative thinking, and engaged citizenship.

Reed students are creative, self-propelled, passionate, and analytical. They have a boundless enthusiasm for learning and an unexpected ability to embrace paradoxes. And they love Reed.

Reed students pursue the bachelor of arts degree in 40 majors and programs. The curriculum includes a yearlong humanities course, broad distribution requirements, and a senior thesis.

 A 9:1 student-to-faculty ratio and small conference-style classes allow faculty members to truly mentor students and engage with them in individual discussions. Reed also offers a graduate program leading to a master of arts degree in liberal studies.

The International Programs Office (IPO) encourages all Reed College students to engage with Reed’s broader global network to integrate international experiences into their education and expand their understanding of other cultures, perspectives, and educational environments.

Reed College is ranked second in the nation in the percentage of graduates who earn PhDs in the life sciences, third in the arts & humanities, and fourth across all disciplines.

This is Reed.

Reed College has established a consortia arrangement with the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, the Universitat de Barcelona, the Universitat Pompeu Fabra de Barcelona to encourage academic cooperation through research and study. 

The four institutions will:

1.1. Promote study abroad and exchanges by students, faculty, and staff from one university to the other for the purpose of engaging in research and education;

1.2. Facilitate the admission of qualified students for the purpose of enrolling in undergraduate programs;

1.3. Foster the exchange of academic publications and scholarly information;

1.4. Promote other academic activities which enhance the above-mentioned goals
