About Albright College
A diverse learning community that encourages innovation and interdisciplinarity, Albright College aspires to serve as a national model for integrating the liberal arts with a commitment to college access for a broad and diverse population. A selective liberal arts college founded in 1856 and located in the residential neighborhood of College Heights in Reading, PA, Albright is located within an hour of Philadelphia, two hours from Baltimore, and three hours from New York City and Washington, D.C., Albright enrolls approximately 1600 students from 30 states and 12 countries in our residential college and about 500 nontraditional students in our evening, accelerated degree programs. Our 45% diversity rate helps students prepare for today’s global workplace, where differences in backgrounds and perspectives are the norm.
Albright offers some 58 undergraduate majors, all of them firmly grounded in the liberal arts. The College’s flexible interdis¬ciplinary curriculum encourages students to combine majors and dis¬ciplines to create an individualized academic program that meets their needs and reflects their interests. The College’s most popular majors are business, biology, psycholog...y, sociology, and fashion. Seeking to modernize the curriculum to align its strengths with emerging student interests, Albright has in recent years added majors in game and simula¬tion development, music industry studies, digital stu¬dio art, and digital communications, with each course of study based in a rigorous liberal arts core.
Albright College faculty take great pride in our commitment to teaching, our close relationships with students, and our collaborative, interdisciplinary approach to learning.
We are looking for new colleagues who are committed to joining us in our mission of educating students of academic promise, and who would thrive in a learning community that places significant value on the residential nature of a liberal arts learning community, including our relationship with the City of Reading in Berks County, PA, which provides experiential learning and research opportunities for our students.
