Creating Equitable Futures

Equity in Health

Equity in Global Studies

Our global studies program enriches students with international study and travel experiences, cultivating the cultural awareness and global perspectives essential for promoting worldwide equity and understanding.

Interdisciplinary Studies Interdisciplinary studies sit at the intersection of separate but unified fields of study and integrates them into a unique educational experience that might resonate more with students than a traditional degree program. This combination of multiple academic disciplines encourages students to think across boundaries. Bennett College offers two paths of Interdisciplinary studies: Traditional and Africana Women’s Studies.

What Makes
Bennett College So Different?

Bennett College has dismantled the traditional 16-week semester model to implement a radical Minimester Model. This helps to limit the cognitive load for our students and make academics more accessible. To learn more about the Minimester Model and why smallness is our strength, check out this interview from President Walsh!

What is a Minimester?

Instead of semesters, Bennett College students have 3 Minimesters.

MM1

Minimester 1:

2 weeks for introductory courses or an intensive 3-credit hour class.

MM2

Minimester 2:

7 weeks for 3-credit hour classes.

MM3

Minimester 3:

7 weeks for 3-credit hour classes.
